The most beautiful classical music ever written.

What’s the music that makes you swoon? The sounds that make your world stand still? For 20 years, ABC Classic FM’s Breakfast show has featured a daily ‘Swoon’, and each morning listeners across the country look forward to this ‘little parcel of rapture’ – a chance to shut out the noise and busyness of everyday life and drink in the loveliness of pure music. Over the past two decades, the Swoon phenomenon has touched the lives of millions of Australians with moments of musical bliss.

Put the magic of Swoon at the heart of The Classic 100, Classic FM’s eagerly awaited annual survey of listener favourites, and you have the best of the best: Australia’s top moments of musical heaven.

The box set of the complete top 100 pieces was Australia's highest-selling classical album of 2015. Now ABC Classics present the distilled version, featuring the complete top 10 Swoons (CD1) plus a disc of highlights: 13 sublime tracks specially selected from across the full Swoon spectrum.
