So it’s official. Ludwig van Beethoven is now the UK’s favourite classical composer, according to Classic FM.

For the first time, he has more pieces than Wolfgang Mozart (19 against 16) in the Top 100 Hall of Fame, which is compiled from a public vote. Some will say – about time too. Beethoven is classical music’s titan. More than that, he is the perfection of the romantic artist-hero. Full story.
