Donizetti, Les Martyrs (3CD)

Price: £34.99 Buy Now

Hear Les Martyrs, the latest in the Orchestra’s collaboration with Opera Rara, conducted from a new critical edition of the score by OAE Principal Artist, Sir Mark Elder.

‘The OAE’s sound is wonderfully sparkly and transparent, everything beautifully balanced… thrillingly fresh’ – Gramophone.

A fascinating mix of Italian and French Operatic styles and a work of high drama, Les Martyrs is essentially a re-write of Donizetti’s Poliuto, re-fashioned for Parisian tastes with an elaborate and startling overture, ballet music, new arias and innovative ensemble pieces.
