Carol Vaness is a less than vulnerable priestess in a noisy live recording of Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride, championed by Riccardo Muti at La Scala. The late Gösta Winbergh is a poignant Pylade but hearing Thomas Allen’s Oreste is a reminder that he recorded the role under more ideal studio circumstances with Eliot Gardiner and the fresher-voiced Diana Montague.
