For three hours every weekday, we offer all the music, news and information you need to make your journey home an enjoyable one.
Join John for a wonderful new recording of Bach as his Featured Album and music from Downton Abbey as well as birthday celebrations for the great film composer, Ennio Morricone.
Today sees the 60th anniversary of the publication of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. So tonight, we’ll hear music from the film adaptation of the novel.
Today John will be marking the start of the Cambridge Music Festival with recordings from some of this year’s performers.
Tonight’s Big Piece After 6 is a wonderful orchestral poem which, if you’re of a certain vintage, may remind you of your childhood. We’ll also enjoy more sparkling Baroque music from this week’s Featured Album.
On this, the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Eurostar, John Brunning promises quite a musical journey on Classic FM Drive: we’ll go from London, to Paris and Brussels – and back again.
