50 Moments That Rocked the Classical Music World

Saturdays, 7-9pm

Alex James 50 moments rocked classical music

Alex James presents a landmark new 10-part series uncovering the times in history when classical music was changed forever.

Earlier this year, Classic FM released a brand new book entitled The 50 Moments That Rocked the Classical Music World.  

Inspired by the book, Alex James presents a new 10-part series uncovering the times in history when classical music was changed forever.  

Each week, Alex will be picking out five very different 'moments' and exploring their significance. 

Over the course of the series, he is hoping to debunk the myth that the classical music world is a genteel one, as he explores riots, revolutions and instances when convention was challenged ­nearly always for the better.
