Passionate about the world of classical music

BBC Music Magazine is the world’s best selling classical music magazine and is the most comprehensive monthly guide to the world of classical music – live, broadcast and recorded. It is packed full of information and inspiring features on all aspects of classical music and is read by an engaged, informed audience of affluent, upmarket culture lovers.

BBC Music Magazine is published by Immediate Media Company London Limited under licence from BBC Worldwide who help fund new BBC programmes.


There’s an awful lot of classical music out there to discover – roughly 800 years of it, in fact. But each month, you’ll find BBC Music Magazine at hand to help you make sense of it all. We’ll help you build that terrific library of recordings you’ve always wanted, we’ll guide you to the finest concerts in your area, and we’ll get the best writers in the business to bring the great composers to colourful life. We think there’s no other classical music magazine out there to rival BBC Music for variety, quality and value – our monthly free CD, featuring international musicians and soloists performing complete concertos, symphonies and much more, is worth the price alone!
