  Internet Public Library: Music History 102
A musical theorist as well as a composer, by 1761 Gluck had come to the conclusion that the important elements in ballet and opera should be the story and the feelings of the characters, not the ridiculous intrigues, mistaken identities, and myriad sub-plots that had become the stock-in-trade of the Baroque opera.
Although his style of music was coming to an end and his ideals were just gaining a foothold at the time of his death, Gluck's operatic reforms did have a far-reaching impact on future composers, affecting the stage works of Mozart, Berlioz, and Wagner.
He composed two, and his music transforms the majesty of the Baroque into that of the early nineteenth century with such choruses as "The Heavens are Telling" from The Creation, premiered in 1798.

 Jan Dismas Zelenka - Instrumental Music - CD
An almost exact contemporary of JS Bach (he was born in 1679, 6 years before Bach, and died in 1745, 5 years before Bach), who spent his working life in Dresden, well within Bach's orbit, Zelenka produced instrumental music which is quite unique.
Forget the familiar territory of Vivaldi, Bach and Handel - Zelenka produces music in his own format (groupings of movements) and his own unique musical phrases, with frequent surprising twists of harmony which catch the listener unawares yet always seem to please.
Zelenka, born in Bohemia and Jesuit-educated, was in an admirable position to take charge of the Catholic church's musical requirement in Dresden, for which he would eventually provide some 150 sacred compositions.
