“Pathétique” translates as “full of emotion” and even Tchaikovsky never wrote anything more powerful, more melodious or more heartbreakingly sincere than the Sixth, an uninhibited musical autobiography. Equally grand in passion are a series of operatic showstoppers from the operas of Rossini, who died 150 years ago, especially when performed by Christine Rice – hailed by critics for her “flashes of vocal fire”. It’s prosecco for the ears.

Overture: The Thieving Magpie

‘Una Voce poco fa’ – from The Barber of Seville

‘La pace mia smarrita’ – from Moses in Egypt
