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 Dvorak`s Song to the Moon to the rousing Habanera from Bizet`s Carmen, there`s something for everyone to love and enjoy!
