Title: Que d’attraits, que de Majesté, from the opera Iphegenie en Aulide
Composer: Christoph Gluck, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Viola
Printout: 4 pages
Note: This beautiful chorus from on of Gluck’s most important operas is ideal for prelude and postlude music, and it also serves well for quieter receptions. Gluck was a major figure in the development of opera, and it is to him we owe the replacement of the da capo aria with more concise and varied forms.
