Bocconcini cheese balls mistaken for classical composer

75 per cent did not know that Elgar wrote Pomp and Circumstance, the music for Land of Hope and Glory Photo: GETTY

One in three (33 per cent) have never listened to classical music and three out of four (75 per cent) did not know that Elgar wrote Pomp and Circumstance, the music for Land of Hope and Glory.

More than one in four (27 per cent) did not even know he was a composer.

A small number, four per cent, wrongly identified Bocconcini as a composer.

Well, I wouldn’t have identified Bocconcini as a composer, but I had never heard of it before!
