The Classic FM Sporting Music Countdown
12 July 2018, 14:05
Vote now for your favourite piece of sporting music, and we’ll count them down on-air!
Right in the middle of a classic summer of sport, we want you to tell us your all-time favourite pieces of classical music that have a sporting connection.
Whether it’s the moment Pavarotti sang ‘Nessun Dorma’ at Italia ’90, Mozart’s ‘A Musical Joke’ introducing the Horse of the Year Show, or even Ravel’s Bolero soundtracking Torvill & Dean’s Olympic gold medal, classical music is synonymous with sport - but which one piece is the nation’s favourite?
Select your number one from the shortlist below (or suggest another) before 23:59 on Monday 13 August, and we’ll count down the top 20 on Classic FM at 8pm on 27 August, Bank Holiday Monday, in a special show hosted by Karthi Gnanasegaram and Henry Blofeld.
