Gluck: Orfeo ed Eurydice (abridged) / Alceste Highlights

Two great singers in memorable Gluck roles

Kathleen Ferrier is heard here as Orfeo, one of only two operatic roles she undertook during her brief career, in a legendary 1947 recording of the abridged Ricordi edition of Gluck‘s Orfeo ed Eurydice. Also included are selections from Kirsten Flagstad’s 1956 recording of Alceste.
