Purcell : King Arthur

John Eliot Gardiner

Klassiek - Verschenen op 1 september 1985 | Warner Classics

With its lavish music and elaborate staging, the semi-opera King Arthur is one of the master-pieces in Purcell’s works. On a text by the poet John Dryden very freely inspired from Arthurian legend and specifically devised for him, Purcell created a work of great expressive intensity which includes among his most beautiful and well-known arias. While an undergraduate at Cambridge, John Eliot Gardiner launched his career as a conductor with a performance of Vespro della Beata Vergine by Monteverdi, in 1964, which led to the foundation of the Monteverdi Choir. In 1968 he founded the Monteverdi Orchestra. Upon changing from modern instruments to period instruments in 1977, the orchestra changed its name to the English Baroque Soloists in 1978. Gardiner is one of the best conductors in the historically informed movement. © Warner Classics

Gluck: Iphigénie en Tauride

Diana Montague

Klassiek - Verschenen op 1 januari 2004 | Decca Music Group Ltd.

Recordings of Gluck's Iphigénie en Tauride run the stylistic gamut. And while, say, the full-blooded, almost Verdian, productions starring Maria Callas in the 1950s would never be confused with the more scholarly efforts from recent years, they are inarguably aspects of the same piece. John Eliot Gardiner's 1985 recording, starring Diana Montague, John Aler, and Thomas Allen, represents an extremely elegant approach -- one that keeps an even keel, but which bubbles with an understated dramatic tension, most notably in the orchestra. It certainly represents one valid interpretation of Gluck's reformist ideals, maintaining a uniformity of expression that prevents individual moments from distracting from the overall effect of the piece. Gardiner's unique touch is most audible in the orchestra and the ensembles. He brings articulations out of the strings especially that add incredible depth to Gluck's instrumental storytelling, and the women's chorus, here playing priestesses of the goddess Diana, delivers a crystalline, tonally pure performance. As the heroine, Diana Montegue sings clearly and capably, but she surrenders center stage to her more vocally assertive costars. Aler's tightly focused, somewhat throaty tenor is a good match for the role of Pylades, making the most of his more lyrical moments. Thomas Allen makes short work of the tricky-high "Dieux quit me poursuivez," and then delivers an almost eerily peaceful "Le calme rentre dans mon coeur" over Gardiner's pulsing strings. Although he sounds more distant than the other singers, he still manages to steal the show. If the recording has one persistent flaw, it is the too-distant-by-half focus of the voices, which don't quite cut the way they should. They lack punch. But overall this is a strong choice as a first or primary recording of Iphigénie. © TiVo
