The music Klassik Radio is broadcasting can be described as relaxation music which consists mainly of very light pieces of the repertoire of the classical music and, increasingly, film music that is suitable for conscious listening. Complete works of classical music are not played, but rather selected movements, which can be enjoyed individually.
1.7 million people listen to Klassik Radio everyday and 204.000 in an average hour (according to Media Analysis 2012 Radio I). These listeners are the premium target group in Germany because they have a high income, a high education above-average, a wide range of interests and they are very interested in culture.
