One of the biggest events of the classical calendar last year was Joyce DiDonato's solo recital, with conductor Antonio Pappano on the piano. Tickets sold out like hot cakes – but we have two exclusive videos of the intimate concert for you to enjoy…

It was the concert that everyone was talking about – one of the world's greatest mezzo-sopranos in a solo recital with one of the world's best conductor-pianists, at one of the world's most prestigious venues.

Of course, it sold out in a matter of minutes.

But fear not! Classic FM has two exclusive videos from inside the intimate performance for you to watch right here:
