An indispensable guide to classical music

Our Top 100 serves as the starting point for building a classical library.

Based on performance frequency and CD sales data from the UK and the USA this list represents the core works of the classical repertoire.

Now available in national flavours to reflect differing local tastes.  Caffeine-free or full-fat for you?

To supplement our Top 100 list we also have a number of ‘voluntary’ additions such as our listing of
‘must have’ operas.

Feel free to sprinkle these on to your musical banquet to suit your tastes.  For some, opera is the gateway to classical music, for others it is an impossible hurdle.  Add these when you feel ready!
