The Dance of the Blessed Spirits from ´Orpheus and Eurydice´ for flute and piano. Gluck´s secondFrench reform Opera Orphee Et Euridice was first performed in 1774. It was a reworking of a previous Italian opera that Gluck had composed in Venice in 1762 and which marked the begininning of Gluck´s operatic reforms. He had the libretto translated from Italian to French and modified and recast the entire opera to cater to the taste of the French audiences. The present arrangement retains the original Flute part, whilst the Piano is assigned the function of the Orchestral accompaniment.
