Christoph Willibald Gluck is historically opera’s most important reformer. Iphigénie en Tauride, arguably his greatest achievement, was given a vivid reading in 1983 by conductor Riccardo Muti and an outstanding cast. After enthusing about “Muti’s driving, insistent intensity” and, in the title role, Carol Vaness’s “driving, soaring voice”, Fanfare’s reviewer also noted that “the rest of the cast here is superior … particularly the Pylade of Gösta Winbergh that is well-nigh flawless.”
