Team Mozart

Hall of Fame teams

Wonderful Wolfgang! Amazing Amadeus! Marvellous Mozart! Tim's cheerleading at the front of this classical composer's team - and he thinks you should join him...

This year, the Classic FM Hall of Fame is more competitive than ever before. The composers are going head to head in the ultimate classical battle, so they can claim the prize of being top of the top 300 in 2014.

Unfortunately, most of the composers in the Hall of Fame are, well, dead. So we've enlisted the help of a few of our presenters to champion their cause.

Tim Lihoreau, host of the More Music Breakfast Show, is Mozart's biggest fan. Symphonies, concertos, operas - you name it, he loves it. So much, in fact, that he even dedicates an entire day of the week to the composer: More Mozart Monday, if you were wondering.

It was tricky for Tim to decide on one ultimate piece to choose. Symphony No. 21 almost took the crown for him, but he's opted to vote for the Mozart Clarinet Concerto as his No. 1 choice in the Classic FM Hall of Fame this year.

What do you think? Should Mozart take the top spot in 2014? Is the Clarinet Concerto a worthy choice? Maybe the clarinet's just not for you and you're more of a Figaro fan. Or perhaps you just love his Symphony No. 1 - anything that awesome written by an eight-year-old is worthy of a vote.

If you're mad about Mozart, join Tim Lihoreau on #TeamMozart by voting for him in the Hall of Fame 2014.
