John Suchet

Weekdays 10am-1pm

John Suchet

Following the Hall of Fame Hour at 9am every morning, the ever-enthusiastic John Suchet offers a further three hours of favourite classics and new discoveries.

Our favourite silver fox of a broadcaster, who may conceivably know more about Beethoven than the composer himself, sees it as his mission to provide the perfect soundtrack to your busy morning.

At 10.15 John features a daily track from his CD of the Week. It’s always a new album and, over the course of five days, John promises to reveal some fascinating stories about the composer, the performer, and the music in question.

MONDAY
John's back from his hols and the music is guaranteed to be sunny today with a chance for you to choose the ultimate Monday morning Classical Kickstarter.

TUESDAY Today John has the exclusive premiere play of the brand new release from Chinese piano sensation Lang Lang. 

WEDNESDAY
John is offering you the chance to win VIP trips to Classic FM Live and there's more Mozart from our brilliant new Album of the Week, featuring one of the stars of Classic FM Live next week: Julian Bliss.

THURSDAY
This morning, John features performances by the winning artists from last night’s Gramophone Awards.

FRIDAY
How do you fancy a VIP night at Classic FM Live next week, with access to the after-show party to meet the stars and a night in a top London hotel? Listen this morning, you could be winning just that!
