By Andrew Clark [Financial Times, 10 April 2010]

Gluck composed his most famous opera for Vienna in 1762 in Italian, later reworking and extending it for Paris in French, which is the version we hear in this live recording made last summer at Madrid’s Teatro Real. A third version, the one recorded 10 years ago by John Eliot Gardiner, is by Berlioz.
