Celebrating the 300th anniversary of Gluck’s birth, Daniel Behle presents this album of Gluck’s lesser-known opera arias. Showcasing their rich variety of styles, he illustrates that these works are primed for revival. Behle is accompanied by one of Europe’s leading Baroque orchestras, Armonia Atenea, conducted by George Petrou. Four world premiere recordings are featured in a program which includes arias from ten different Gluck operas.
