Also Sprach Zarathustra Opus 30 Richard Strauss
What is the all-time most loved piece of children's music? In the first nationwide poll of its kind, we need your help to find the piece of classical music children love the most.
Could it be John Williams' modern Hollywood classic the Harry Potter theme? Or a composition inspired by children's books like Blake's Walking in the Air? Or maybe the much-loved older works such as Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker and Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals?
Everyone who voted was entered into a prize draw to win a fantastic all-expenses paid family weekend in London and tickets to see Nutcracker at the Coliseum. The winning family will also receive a presentation disc signed by all the Classic FM presenters and 10 runners up will receive a copy of Children’s Classics, an album which is being created to celebrate the inaugural Children’s Hall of Fame.*
Voting closed on 26 October and the winning piece will be announced in a special Children's Hall of Fame show co-presented by Faryl Smith and Anne-Marie Minhall on 1st November between 3pm and 5pm.
