Classical music top ten chart

There are no new releases in the Classical Chartz Top Ten for this week, but there’s a lot of movement up and down, and in between.

Daniil Trifonov, Sergei Babayan: Rachmaninoff For Two and Hauser’s Classic II exchange places for the week, with the latter making the top up to No. 1, and the former falling to No. 2. Yo-Yo Ma, Emanuel Ax and Leonidas Kavako and their uber-popular Beethoven For Three holds the line at the No. 3 position.

Il Volo, Rafael Payare and the Montréal Symphony, Lang Lang (still on the charts after weeks and weeks with his Saint-Saëns), and Il Divo make short drops in the list, while Yundi, and Leonidas Kavakos solo climb up.

The biggest jump comes from André Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra, who vault from No. 10 back up the list to No. 4 with Love Is All Around (Live).

The Vrijthof at Maastricht in the Netherlands is the scene of Rieu’s annual Love Is All Around concerts. They’re a joyous occasion where the classical music artists on stage party with an enthusiastic audience. That energy is captured in the live recording that is taking over the Classical Chartz, with a track list that includes everything from Strauss and classical greatest hits to spirituals and more.
