Product Description

The Classic FM Hall of Fame, launched back in 1996, is the world's biggest annual survey of classical music tastes. Every year, thousands of listeners tell Classic FM their top three pieces of classical music – and then, across each Easter weekend, the station spends four days counting down what is an extraordinary chart.

The 2014 compilation album features some of the best classical pieces from the year's countdown, including all of the pieces that have reached number one in the chart's 17 year history - and new previously unavailable inclusions by cult video game soundtrack composers Nobuo Uematsu and Jeremy Soule. A host of the world's greatest performers including Nicola Benedetti, Julian Lloyd Webber, Emma Johnson and Harry Christophers and The Sixteen, make this an unmissable classical compilation.

Format: Audio CD
The 42 tracks on this 4 disc set reflect the Classic FM radio listeners votes for their favourite piece of classical music of all time. Included also are some of the previous number ones from the chart's 17 year history.

Noteworthy are the appearances in the chart, and included on this set, of two scores from video games - the Main Theme from Final Fantasy (performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Andrew Skeet), and the uplifting theme from Elder Scrolls V- Skyrim by American composer Jeremy Soule. Both of these pieces are, for me, well worthy of their place in today's classical chart and help bring this type of orchestral music to a new generation of enthusiasts.

The old favourites from Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Elgar and more are deservedly here and Vaughan Williams wins this year's top spot, by listener's votes, with the perennial favourite `Lark Ascending'.

Orchestras, conducters and soloists are top class as always with Classic FM `Best Of' compilations, and include the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Contertgebouw, Zubin Mehta, Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Georg Solti, The Sixteen, Yehudi Menuhin and many, many more.

There may be a little repetition from previous Classic FM collections, but this is a nice selection of classical music representing the traditional and the new contenders for future years.

The music on this collection is varied, from all styles and group sizes and instrumentalists. The Classic FM Hall of Fame is a collection of the favourite music as voted by listeners of Classic FM. There are 4 CD's included with 42 tracks in total.

The standard of the recordings on this collection is second to none. You have conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Sir Neville Mariner, Sir Charles Mackerras, and Sir George Solti to name just a few.

Overall, this is a great collection of some of the most well known and popular classical music, played by some of the worlds finest musicians.

For someone who isn't a true aficionado of classical music but like a broad selection - this album was an ideal 'taster' of a great range of classical music. 42 tracks for a very reasonable price. Good value for money.
