This book brings together a variety of eighteenth century sources--principally letters to and from Gluck--to construct a portrait of one of the most interesting musicians of that century. Celebrated today for his historical significance, as the composer who did most to effect the transition from baroque to classical opera, Gluck in his lifetime was both a controversial and a colorful figure. Besides the letters, the book includes a wealth of factual documents and informal anecdotes, not easily accessible in the original German, French and Italian languages. Everything has been arranged and translated to provide readers with a lively, continuous narrative.

About the Author:

Patricia Howard is presently a tutor and lecturer in music at the Open University, Milton Keynes.

Review:


"Howard beautifully fills a great need."--Choice


"[A] meticulously researched...erudite volume."Day by Day


"...Howard's quick juxtaposition of many different contemporary writings gives a wonderful flavor of the time...One of the many virtues of Howard's book is its capacity to remind us of both the continuities and the unbridgeable differences between modern operatic life and that of Gluck's time."--The Opera Quarterly
