About the series:

In collaboration with the Centre de musique baroque de Versailles (CMBV) all arias from Christoph Willibald Gluck’s French operas will be published for the first time in a collection of four volumes, ordered by voice type.
With their wide variety of arias and informative texts these volumes constitute a valuable resource of works by one of the preeminent composers of the 18th century for singing lessons, auditions and recitals.
In addition to the bilingual Foreword (Fr/Eng), the informative text section covers, for each aria, a brief dramaturgical placement into the context of the respective plot as well as a literal English translation.
