Philippe Jaroussky records Gluck: Che farò senza Euridice (Orfeo ed Euridice)
Che farò senza Euridice?
Dove andrò senza il mio ben?
Euridice, o Dio, rispondi!
Io son pure il tuo fedele.
Euridice! Ah, non m´avanza
più soccorso, più speranza
ne dal mondo, ne dal ciel.
What will I do without Euridice?
Where will I go without my beloved?
Euridice, oh God, answer me!
Yet I still belong to you faithfully.
Euridice! Ah, no help comes to me anymore,
No hope anymore,
Neither from this world, nor from heaven.
Philippe Jaroussky records Gluck: Che farò senza_Euridice (Orfeo ed Euridice)
Star countertenor Philippe Jaroussky continues his exploration of operatic settings of the Orpheus myth with the most famous of the many operas inspired by the story of the Greek poet who searches for his dead wife in the Underworld: Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. It contains one of the world’s best-loved operatic arias, Orfeo’s restrained, but moving lament, ‘Che farò senza Euridice’.
Conducted by Diego Fasolis, his is the world premiere recording of a version of the opera that was performed at the Royal Palace in Naples in 1774, 12 years after Orfeo ed Euridice was staged in Vienna as the first of Gluck’s ‘reform operas’. In these works Gluck emphasised simplicity of form and directness of expression, consciously rejecting the extravagances of opera seria, which dominated the early 18th century and was typified by convoluted plots and extended showpiece arias.
