Saturdays, 9pm. Last year, David Mellor presented a series of programmes which shone the spotlight on a much-maligned – but much-enjoyed – genre of music: Light Music. Hundreds of Classic FM listeners got in touch to ask for more, so David now begins a brand new series of his Light Music Masters. Let him know your thoughts via the form below or tweet @ClassicFM.
Originating in the 19th century, Light Music is a hugely popular genre. Usually short – always melodic – orchestral pieces composed to appeal to a wide audience, many have become timeless favourites through film, radio and TV.
Light Music is well worth discovering, which is why David Mellor is presenting this new six-part series for the summer on Classic FM.
