Sir Mark Elder conducts a scintillating account of Donizetti's 1829 opera about religious persecution in sixteenth-century India, starring Albina Shagimuratova, René Barbera, and Misha Kiria.
In the wake of his recording of Images and Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune with the Hallé, the conductor talks to Katherine about his relationship with Debussy's music, and Colin Matthews's evocative orchestrations of the piano Préludes.
