13th January: Last week’s top re-entries The Classical Album and The 50 Greatest Pieces of Classical Music switch around, at no. 1 and no. 2, and Renée Fleming’s new album is the highest new entry at no. 8.
Andrew Collins is the new host of Classic FM’s Saturday Night at the Movies. And Tim Lihoreau will be welcoming him to the fold with this web chat. Andrew will be online to answer your questions from 9am this Wednesday, 11 March, so post your questions below.
Andrew is a broadcaster and writer who started his career covering music before moving into film journalism. He’s currently film editor of the Radio Times and a television critic for The Guardian .
Andrew is also an award-winning scriptwriter, author and presenter.
His first show, on Saturday 7 March, includes film scores by movie music legends Bernard Herrmann, Elmer Bernstein and John Williams. And in shows later this month he’ll feature music from the winners of the Bafta Games Awards, which takes place on 12 March.
"Like many people, I found my way into classical music through film soundtracks, so it is with great pleasure and a sense of privilege that I join Classic FM to host Saturday Night At The Movies," Andrew said.
"It's a show that has long entertained me as a listener, combining my twin lifelong loves: music and cinema. I look forward to mixing the familiar with some buried treasure over the coming months."
