Classic FM Live: the best bits... in under a minute!

David Garrett, Hayley Westenra, Martynas, and the entire Classic FM Live line-up joined us at the Royal Albert Hall to tweet and Instagram one of the most spectacular musical nights of the year. Here are the condensed highlights.

The performers arrived, rehearsed, and sounded awesome.


We then dragged the artists in front of the cameras (this showbiz thing is hard work, isn't it?)

As the performance neared, we got to see your vantage points

We got underway, and boy does David Garrett know how to make an entrance

This is the #ZadokMoment - and it was amazing.

Did we mention that Lady Gaga was here? (well, sort of)

How would a Classic FM audience respond to some Gaga pop. Well...

The 1812 finale was spectacular (and a little frightening), as ever

And here it all is, in twelve seconds...

 ...and the rest
