Classic FM - A Decade in Pictures
"Interviewing German tenor Jonas Kaufmann and then seeing him and Simon Keenleyside in Don Carlo at the Royal Opera House. Unusually for an opera the story isn't completely mad and the music is Verdi's best. The pianist Marielle Labeque was sitting next to me as her husband Semyon Bychkov was the show's conductor. She was talking me through the production and issuing warnings: 'you'll be weeping after this next act.' Unmissable."
