Other famous string pieces inside the top ten include Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1 and Elgar's Cello Concerto, in seventh and eighth place respectively.

Mozart had the highest entry for a piece of music focused on a wind instrument, with his Clarinet Concerto placing sixth for the second consecutive year.

The top 80 classical works were counted down on Monday (April 13th). Only two film soundtracks made it into the final part of the 300-strong list, Shore's The Lord of the Rings (32nd) and Hess's Ladies in Lavender (58th).
