Voting is now open in the Classic FM Hall of Fame 2024! Which pieces of music will top the chart this year?

The annual Classic FM Hall of Fame is the largest poll of the world's favourite classical music. Every January we ask you to get in touch to tell us which are your three top pieces of music. Then, come Easter, we count down from Number 300 and reveal the new Classic FM Hall of Fame.

Mozart, Rachmaninov and Vaughan Williams have been among the composers who have topped the poll in recent years. But Bruch also took the Number 1 spot for several years. And, although Beethoven always has a strong presence in the top 300, he's never taken that coveted top spot.

Since 2013, soundtracks for video games like Final Fantasy, Banjo Kazooie and The Elder Scrolls have been climbing up the chart. In 2014 Final Fantasy reached Number 3, the highest ever position for a video game soundtrack.

Film maestro John Williams took the crown as the most popular living composer in 2023, which also saw a record number of movie scores in the Top 300.

Women composers have been rising up the chart in recent years, with successes for Clara Schumann, Florence Price, Rachel Portman, Yoko Shimomura and beyond.

What will top the chart in 2024? Look out for voting opening soon...
