What is the most famous piece of classical music? You might already have a tune playing in your mind that answers that question. On this week's Ethercast, we examine several ways to measure fame in a genre with thousands of potential candidates throughout history. Is a famous piece defined by how often it is performed, or if it makes the jump to popular culture? Listen above to see if you agree with the three choices we came up with.

Ethercast is the companion podcast to Ether Game, WFIU's classical music triva show. Join us Tuesday evenings at 8'oclock for the chance to win a prize on Ether Game!
