Yunchan Lim’s Chopin Etudes continues his meteoric rise up the Chartz, vaulting from No. 6 last week directly to the No. 1 spot. Just behind, climbing more slowly, but steadily, John Williams and the Saito Kinen Orchestra step up to No. 2 from No. 3 last week with John Williams In Tokyo.

There are three newcomers to the Classical Chartz Top Ten this week. Karina Gauvin and Marie Hubert — Fille du Roy jumps up ten spaces from 16 to land at No. 6. In the album, the Québécoise soprano tells the story in music of Marie Hubert, one of the so-called Fille du Roi, or young French women who crossed the Atlantic to live in Nouvelle-France. Musically, Gauvin delves into folklore from France and Québec, including works by Oscar O’Brien (1892-1958), Charles-Émile Gadbois (1906-1981), and others. She’s joined on the album by conductor Claude Lapalme, Étienne Lafrance, Pentaèdre, Pierre McLean, Quatuor Molinari, and Valérie Milot.

Khatia Buniatishvili makes an impressive leap from No. 12 last week to No. 7 with Labyrinth Ephemera EP. The Georgian pianist returns to familiar ground in this 7-track E, the follow up to her hugely successful self-titled album of 2020. Here, she selects works from diverse periods, from the baroque to modern classics, including pieces by J.S. Bach, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Max Richter, Tchaikovsky and Purcell.

Stephan Moccio makes his debut on the Chartz with a spot at No. 10. His Legends, Myths & Lavender is the result of leaving his home in Los Angeles for the South of France. Away from urban influences at the historic Chateau Miraval, Moccio indulged his three avowed loves: music, wine and architecture. He’s combined all of those influences into the original compositions on the album. The Grammy and Oscar-nominated artist says he was deeply influenced by the centuries of history he felt at the Chateau in composing the 17 tracks.
