Rome's Auditorium hosts Rossini recording
Star conductor Antonio Pappano has just finished a three-day recording session in Rome, working on a rarely-heard choral piece by Rossini.
The piece was recorded in the ultra-modern Auditorium, a world-class venue, giving it what Pappano calls "emotion... precision... conviction".
But while the recording may be over, it will take another three months of editing before release, into a market where classical music sales are falling around the world.
David Willey reports from Rome.
