Lang Lang has a lock on No. 1 for another week. Amid the media hype about the superstar pianist, here’s another stat: composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ streams on Spotify have shot to more than 5 million per month, and that includes multiple versions of his works — not only Lang Lang’s recent addition to his discography.

There’s a lot of shuffling in the middle of the Top Ten. Il Divo hang on to No. 3 with XX. Daniel Hope and the National Arts Centre Orchestra swop No.4 and No. 2 from last week, along with other minor adjustments.

The newcomer to the Top Ten this week is Francesca Dego and the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Brahms & Busoni Violin Concertos, which makes the climb from No. 12 to land at No. 10. Italian-American violinist Dego is noted for her technical skills. Dalia Stasevka conducts the BBCSO, and the combination of composers offers listeners a dramatic contrast. Brahms’ Violin Concerto was decried by noted violinists of his day as too difficult – even unplayable. It is undeniably challenging, and requires superb technique, as well as a grasp of its emotional depth. Busoni’s approach is sparkling, energetic, and requires virtuosity with a sense of expression.
