Classic FM Drive with John Brunning
John Brunning brings you our nightly mix of feel-good classics.
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 three hours of great get-you-home music, including a brand new Featured Album, from the remarkable Russian pianist Grigory Sokolov.
Tonight, more marvellous piano music on Classic FM Drive – including something from this week’s Featured Album, and a piece by Brahms which received a rather unwelcome response on this day in 1859.
John can promise three hours of music to ease your journey home, including one of Beethoven’s crowning glories for the Big Piece After 6. And we’ll wind down into Wednesday evening, with an hour of Smooth Classics at 7.
How do you fancy coming up with the name for a brand new piece of classical music? Join John after 5 to find out more – and don’t miss another track from our outstanding Featured Album, from the great Russian pianist Grigory Sokolov.
John broadcasts live from Sage Gateshead, as part of Classic FM’s Royal Northern Sinfonia Week. He’ll have the Friday Film Favourite, as usual, alongside an hour of Smooth Classics at 7 to help you wind down at the start of the weekend.
