Tune of the Day: Gavotte by Gluck

from “Paride ed Elena”

This gavotte is taken from the end of Act III of Christoph Willibald Gluck's opera Paride ed Elena (Paris and Helen), which premiered in Vienna in 1770. The opera tells the story of the events between the mythical Judgment of Prince Paris and the flight of Paris and Helen to Troy.

The same Gavotte was reused by Gluck in Act II, Scene 3 of his 1774 opera Iphigénie en Aulide.
