More About This Title The Ultimate Classic FM Hall of Fame: The Greatest Classical Music of All Time
What are the greatest pieces of classical music ever composed? Every music lover has a favorite, whether it is one that moves you to joy or tears, that makes itself heard with marching refrains or delicately rises with soft flutes. The Classic FM Hall of Fame is proud to present the richness and beauty of classical music for aficionados everywhere. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the popular Hall of Fame countdown, Classic FM have updated this edition with a new countdown—distilling the charts from the past 20 years into one beautifully produced book containing the 300 greatest pieces of classical music of all time. It is full of specially commissioned illustrations, biographies of the leading composers, recommended recordings, and of course stories for the 300 pieces themselves.
Darren Henley is the managing director of Classic FM. He was named Commercial Radio Programmer of the Year in 2009. This is his 20th book about classical music and musicians. Sam Jackson is Classic FM's head of music. Tim Lihoreau is the creative director, as well as an on-air host.
