Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Classical Music

Catherine Bott

Over 150 episodes, acclaimed singer and broadcaster Catherine Bott covers everything you ever wanted to know about classical music. It's one of the biggest non-fiction series in the history of British radio. 

For the next three years, Catherine Bott will shine the spotlight on every area of classical music answering such questions ranging from 'What exactly is classical music?' to 'How did Beethoven manage to compose when he was deaf?'

Future editions of the show will include special explorations of film music, contemporary pieces and - during the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth in 2014 - the role of famous works of literature in shaping the history of classical music.  

And over the course of the series, listeners are encouraged to submit their questions and suggestions for topics to be addressed by Catherine. 

She says: "I'm thrilled to be part of the lively team at Classic FM and am enjoying sharing my love of great music with listeners as we travel together on this voyage of discovery."
