Gluck's Last Judgment

Near the end of his life, Christoph Gluck was asked by Salieri whether a bass or a tenor should sing the part of Christ in The Last Judgment. "If you wait a little," Gluck replied, "I shall be able to tell you from personal experience."

["The melodies of Gluck are at times mediocre," Romain Rolland once declared, "and the beauty of his art is above all moral."]
