Yesterday, we finished counting down this year’s Classic FM Hall of Fame – the UK’s biggest annual survey of classical music tastes. Now, Jane Jones spends a few weeks profiling music from the latest chart – all performed in full.
Tonight’s concert is bookended with two fine piano concertos – and in between, there’s a contemporary choral classic by Eric Whitacre, and the beautiful Serenade for Strings by Tchaikovsky.
