Format: Audio CD
What makes this set so special is that, although this is (again) a recording of the original 1762 Italian version of Gluck's most celebrated (and recorded) opera, Jacobs has decided to cast a female alto as Orfeo rather that a countertenor, as has become "fashionable" in the recent(ish) recordings of this work. So, how does Ms. Bernada Fink compare to Michael Chance (for Bernius,on Sony), Derek Lee Ragin (for Gardiner), or Rene Jacobs himself (for Kuijken on Accent, my favourite recording until now) all strongest contendants ? Well to me, she first demonstrates how much more immediately appealling, how much richer a female contralto voice can sound compared to a countertenor (sorry guys !). Apart from the appeal of the voice itself, she is a first class Orfeo, very moving indeed, but this should not surprise you if you have already heard her many contribution to the record (her Cornelia in Handel's "Giulio Cesare" and her Cain in Scarlatti's "Il primo omicidio" come particularly recommended). This is now my favourite version.

I haven't heard other recordings of this opera, but this one is definitely lovely.

The only thing I want to add is that this recording is available in the "Lumières" box from Harmonia Mundi, which also includes quite a few other fine recordings, such as Jacobs' recording of "Le Nozze di Figaro," Reuss' recording of Handel's "Solomon," Christie's recording of Rameau's "Castor et Pollux," Herreweghe's recording of Beethoven's 9th symphony. Those are the highlights (IMO) but there're some other odds and ends as well.

There can be no question that this is a beautifully sung and conducted performance. What the buyer needs to be concerned about is that this is an early version of the opera, and does not include some of the ballet music, such as the famous and beautiful flute solo in act 2. It is also, with Jacobs at the helm, performed with period instruments--if that makes a difference to the listener. A further concern is that the buyer be aware of the HM reissue that does not include a libretto. For this writer, the loss of the ballet music is a difficult omission to accept. If not for that this would receive five stars.

Bernarda Fink, our contralto Orfeo, is hot stuff - this is gorgeous. I think the other versions I've heard have better technique and acting, but Fink has very luxurious tone
and beautiful... phrasing or something. (Yeah, okay, so I'm a novice.) She's a robust Orfeo - sad but demanding.
I'm not so much on board with the period instruments though; they seem unnecessarily jangly.
A libretto with translations is included. I'm not totally sure what edition this is - It's Italian, and mostly seems original, but I think they might have added some of the later ballets and an aria for Euridice - or maybe not.
