The Classic FM Hall of Fame
Ultimate Hall of Fame
About the Hall of Fame
What is the Classic FM Hall of Fame?
Put simply, it's the largest poll of the world's favourite classical music. Every January we ask you to get in touch to tell us which are your three top pieces of music. Then, come Easter, we count down from Number 300 and reveal the new Classic FM Hall of Fame.
Which composers have taken the top spot in the past?
Mozart, Rachmaninov and Vaughan Williams have been among the composers who've topped the poll in recent years. But Bruch also took the Number 1 spot for several years. And, although Beethoven always has a strong presence in the top 300, he's never taken that coveted top spot.
How has the chart changed in recent years?
Three words: video game music. Since 2013, soundtracks for video games like Final Fantasy, Banjo Kazooie and The Elder Scrolls have been climbing up the chart. In 2014 Final Fantasy reached Number 3, the highest ever position for a video game soundtrack.
