Positions 3 to 6 held their ground from last week, including Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the London Symphony Orchestra with Maestro (music by Leonard Bernstein), Andre Rieu’s Jewels of Romance, Bruce Liu and Waves, and Liona Boyd’s Once Upon A Time.

New to the Top Ten is Igor Levit and Mendelssohn, a release that rose from position 13 to No. 7. In interviews, Levit has described feeling a sense of urgency that pushed him to record the work of Mendelssohn, in particular, his Lieder ohne Worte, a piece that Levit is using to help fund antisemitic activism in the wake of the October attacks on Israelis.

The Philharmonic Brass also make the leap up to No. 9 from 14 last week with Overture! The release of virtuosic arrangements of famous overtures includes Verdi’s “La Forza del Destino” and Gershwin’s “Cuban Overture”, along with works by Shostakovich, Beethoven, Borodin and Dvorak. The ensemble’s musicians are culled fromm the Berlin and Vienna Phils, and made their public debut with conductor Tugan Sokhieve at Vienna’s Musikverein in April 2023.
