The Classic 100: Love The Top 10 & Selected Highlights
The Classic 100 is a highly anticipated annual musical phenomenon on ABC Classic FM. Each year Australians are asked to vote for their favourite pieces within a given theme, and in 2017 they were eager to champion their top classical music of ‘love’.
The Classic 100: Love was broadcast on ABC Classic FM over one weekend extravaganza in June 2017, revealing a brilliant selection of favourites alongside some great surprises. Listeners were treated to the drama of opera and the grace of the ballet, the tenderness of a love song and the soundtracks from our favorite romantic movies, and the countdown culminated with the announcement of Australia’s favourite music of love: ‘Au fond du temple saint’ from The Pearl Fishers, which received the most votes by a mile.
This 2CD set compiles the top ten works, and unmissable highlights from the remaining 100 of the world’s favourite music of passion and heartbreak. From the Pearl Fishers Duet – the unanimous crowd favourite – to Barber’s evocative Adagio for Strings, and from the stillness of Dvořák’s Song to the Moon to the rousing Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen, there’s something for everyone to love and enjoy!
