Settling the Score is an annual competition to decide the most popular classical music in the country.

Each year RNZ Concert asks listeners to vote for their favourite classical music, the votes are tallied, the complete countdown is broadcast on RNZ Concert, and the Auckland Philharmonia perform a selection of the top orchestral pieces in concert at the Auckland Town Hall in November.

This year the team has been asking Upbeat guests what their choices might be - even Engelbert Humperdinck.

RNZ Concert presenter Clarissa Dunn gives the low down on this year's competition.
