Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Classical Music - Sunday 16 August 2015, 9pm

'Has Scandinavia produced any great composers?' asks Catherine Bott.

This week Catherine Bott takes you to the lands of fjords, the Tivoli Gardens, the Little Mermaid and Swedish rhapsodies.

Tonight the question before her is, “Has Scandinavia produced any great composers?” And the answer is “Yes, definitely!”

Some of the greatest, in fact, have works that live permanently in the Classic FM Hall of Fame – Grieg and Sibelius. And there are others who aren't quite so well known but deserve to be. 

Discover them tonight.
