    Beethoven has beaten Mozart for the first time to take the title of the most popular composer in the annual poll conducted by Classic FM, with 19 places in the top 300 chart including three in the top 10 compared with Mozart’s 16 pieces.

    在英國古典音樂電台Classic FM舉辦的票選活動中,貝多芬今年首次打敗莫札特,奪下最受歡迎作曲家的頭銜。比起莫札特有16首樂曲擠進前300名,貝多芬以19首更勝一籌,其中還有3首名列前10名。

    The two composers have jointly been voted favorite on three previous occasions. Classic FM presenter John Suchet said: "Ever since we launched the first Classic FM Hall of Fame in 1996 Mozart has taken precedence – that is until now. I think that Beethoven’s new position as the most popular composer has to do with films such as the Oscar winning The King’s Speech, which famously used his Symphony No 7 – but his music is so universally popular, if you land on any street in any town in any country of the world, someone will know Beethoven’s work."

    貝多芬和莫札特曾三度並列最受歡迎作曲家。電台主持人蘇歇說:「自1996年首次舉辦古典名人堂票選以來,莫札特直到今年都居於領先地位。我認為,貝多芬今年會成為冠軍,與榮獲奧斯卡獎的電影《王者之聲:宣戰時刻》採用他的《第7號交響曲》有關。不過話說回來,貝多芬的音樂受到全球喜愛,不論你去到世界上任何國家的任何城鎮,都有人聽過他的作品。」

    The success of the new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, has helped propel the famous John Williams theme music into its highest position, up 38 to No 44, making him the most popular living composer, although Howard Shore’s Lord of the Rings remains the single best loved film score, at No 28.

    電影《星際大戰7部曲:原力覺醒》的賣座,也推動電影配樂上升38名來到第44名,而名氣顯赫的約翰.威廉斯也順勢成為現存最受歡迎的古典樂作曲家。霍華.休爾為《魔戒》創作的配樂則以第28名,繼續保持最受歡迎的電影配樂地位。
