For the first two hours of her show every weekday, Anne-Marie Minhall takes your requests. From blacksmiths wanting to hear Verdi’s Anvil Chorus, to mothers-to-be in labour asking for anything to calm their nerves, you’ll be astonished to discover the people we’ve featured over the years. Then from 3-5pm, Anne-Marie has a further two hours of the best classical music to accompany your afternoon.
From 1pm every weekday, Anne-Marie Minhall is at the helm for Classic FM Requests – and, when the dedications are all concluded at 3, she remains your friendly companion through the afternoon.
In a special Hall of Fame 3 at 3, Anne-Marie features performers who were born on this day - conductors Gustavo Dudamel and Roy Goodman – and, on what would have been her 70th birthday, don’t miss a beautiful recording from the legendary cellist Jacqueline du Pre.
We’ll be hearing a beautiful recording of Gorecki’s Symphony No.3 (‘Symphony of Sorrowful Songs’). Find out why, after today’s Hall of Fame 3 at 3.
Our Artist of the Week is the brilliant Brazilian pianist, whose teachers studied under Franz Liszt, no less. Listen at 4.15 to hear more from the outstanding talent that is Nelson Freire.
In the Hall of Fame 3 at 3, Anne-Marie profiles classical music that’s been put to powerful effect on the silver screen. There’ll be favourites by Saint-Saens, Barber and Mozart – can you remember the film each piece featured in?
Today, Classic FM comes live from Sage Gateshead, where Anne-Marie is continuing our celebrations of the Royal Northern Sinfonia.
