XIID: Christoph Willibald Gluck
Gluck's father, Hans Adam, was hunting and forest master for the Lobkowitz family in the Upper Palatinate, later in northern Bohemia. The family relocated several times during Christoph's young years, and little is known of the boy's schooling or of his first music instructors. Gluck's early attempts to practice musical instruments were reportedly thwarted by his father, who had his son assist him in the hunt. By 1731 (though probably earlier) the boy had left home and escaped to Prague, where he continued his musical studies and supported himself partly as organist at the Tyn Church. He matriculated at the University of Prague, but apparently nothing came of his studies there. In music he remained essentially self-taught. After a few years in Prague he went to Vienna (probably 1735), where at the Lobkowitz Palace he met the Milanese Antonio Maria Prince Melzi; in 1736 or early 1737 Gluck moved to Milan, having been hired as chamber musician for Melzi's household. There he played violin in the prince's court orchestra and probably also studied counterpoint and composition with the city's leading musician, Giovanni Battista Sammartini. Four years passed before Gluck's first opera, Artaserse

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article is about the XVIII century composer. For other uses, see Gluck (disambiguation) Gluck, detail of a portrait by Joseph Duplessis , dated 1775 ( Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna Christoph Willibald Ritter von Gluck (2 July 1714 in Erasbach near Berching Upper Palatinate Vienna ) was an opera composer of the early classical period. After many years at the Habsburg court at Vienna , Gluck brought about the practical reform of opera's dramaturgical practices that many intellectuals had been campaigning for over the years. With a series of radical new works in the 1760s, among them Orfeo ed Euridice and Alceste , he broke the stranglehold that Metastasian opera seria had enjoyed for much of the century. The strong influence of French opera in these works encouraged Gluck to move to Paris, which he did in November 1773. Fusing the traditions of Italian opera and the French national genre into a new synthesis, Gluck wrote eight operas for the Parisian stages. One of the last of these, Iphigénie en Tauride , was a great success and is generally acknowledged to be his finest work. Though he was extremely popular and widely credited with bringing about a revolution in French opera, Gluck's mastery of the Parisian operatic scene was never absolute, and after the poor reception of his

Opera in Western Europe arose at the close of the 16th century in Italy. The form underwent various changes and reforms and the name of Gluck is associated with a tendency to greater operatic realism, the drama subsumed in the music, his principles expounded in his introduction to his opera Alceste in 1767. Reform opera, exemplified in the later work of Gluck, represented a reaction against the stylised forms of later Baroque opera. Gluck achieved considerable success in Vienna, Paris, and elsewhere in Europe. Operas Ballet Music Gluck was associated with the choreographer and dancer Angiolini. Their first collaboration was on the subject of Don Juan, later used by Mozart in his Don Giovanni, based on the Spanish play by Tirso de Molina.

Jump to: navigation search Gluck, Christoph Willibald (1714-87): Austrian, Composer Christoph Willibald Gluck was born in Erasbach in the Upper Palatinate on 2 July 1714. He received some music training at an early age while attending various Catholic schools. He continued his musical training at the university in Prague, where he enrolled at the age of nineteen. He is best known for rebuking the popular style of the Italian opera seria for a form of musical drama that expressed a simple dramatic truth. His reform operas are reputed to constitute the beginning of modern music drama. He is also attributed with being one of the earliest opera composers to maintain a place in the functioning repertory. Gluck’s early musical career was launched by the composition of his first opera Artaserse (1741), which was produced in Milan. In many of his early works, he did not part significantly from the predominant style of the time. However, his first dramatic ballet, Don Juan (1762) represented a departure from tradition and led the way to his later “reform” operas. In this ballet, the music reflects the action of the drama, rather than being subjugated to the particular talents of the principal singers or being simply ornamental in nature.

Gluck, Christoph Willibald,
RITTER (knight) VON GLUCK (b. July 2, 1714, Erasbach, near Berching, Upper Palatinate, Bavaria [Germany]d. Nov. 15, 1787, Vienna, Austria), German classical composer, best known for his operas, including Orfeo ed Eurydice Alceste Paride ed Elena (1774), the French version of Orfeo (1774), and (1779). He was knighted in 1756.
Early life.
Gluck, whose father probably intended for him to continue in the family employment of forestry, at an early age showed a strong inclination toward music. In order to escape from disagreements with his father, the young Gluck left home and, supporting himself by his music, made his way to Prague, where he played in several churches, began university work (1731), and continued his musical studies. He went to Vienna in the winter of 1735-36. There he was discovered by a Lombard nobleman who took him to Milan, where Gluck, apart from fulfilling his duties in the Melzi family chapel, spent four years studying composition with the Italian organist and composer Giovanni Battista Sammartini , from whom he learned the new Italian style of instrumental music. Probably six trio sonatas, consisting of two movements with a minuet as conclusion and printed in London in 1746, were the fruits of his studies with Sammartini in Milan. Besides the six "London" sonatas, Gluck probably composed further trio sonatas under Sammartini.
