Gluck Return to List of Composers
Christoph Gluck was born in Germany in 1714. This composer belonged to the Baroque period, and died in 1787. Gluck Gluck picture

Christoph Gluck (1714-1787)  was born in Germany, educated in Prague, and then settled in Vienna in 1736. Whilst categorized as a baroque composer, he was born in a year halfway between Bach's and Haydn's years of birth, and so there are signs of a more classical style emerging in his operas. He spent a couple of years in London, where he became a great friend of Handel.

Gluck is primarily known for his operas Orpheus and Euridice,  Alceste,  and Iphigenie en Tauride.
