About the Hall of Fame
Every January, we ask the world to send us their three top classical music pieces. Once voting closes, we count and collate the votes, and broadcast the top 300 across the long Easter weekend.
Mozart, Rachmaninov and Vaughan Williams have been among the composers who've topped the poll in recent years, with Beethoven being the composer with the the most entries. The chart covers all facets and genres of classical music, including orchestral, piano works, opera and ballet music.
Either as a place to discover the greatest classical music, or a place to see the fluctuating trends in classical music tastes, The Classic FM Hall of Fame is the must-see annual chart of the world's greatest music.
