Classic FM today became the first radio station in the world to play an excerpt from The Great War Symphony.   Introducing the piece The Dead Soldier from the 3rd movement of the work, presenter John Suchet said it was “a privilege to be the first to play this major new work from Patrick Hawes”.

John Suchet will also be hosting the World Premiere in London’s Royal Albert Hall on 9th October 2018 – tickets are still available but moving quickly!
