Christoph Willibald Gluck, (1714 – 1787), was a pianist and best known for his operas in the Italian and French style. He is credited with revolutionising the way French opera was performed, removing traditional parts and adding others. Perhaps his best known opera is Iphigenie and Touride (Iphigénie en Tauride).

The Dance of the Blessed Spirits comes from his opera Orpheus and Eurydice and the flute of the quintet takes the lead in this arrangement.
