For 20 years, ABC Classic FM’s Breakfast show has featured a ‘Swoon’ – a little parcel of rapture whose beauty is so profound that it creates a musical oasis of calm. Each morning, Classic FM listeners across the country look forward to their daily Swoon — a chance to shut out the noise and busyness of everyday life, and drink in the loveliness of pure music.
