The top three of the Classical Chartz Top Ten remain the same for the second week. The soundtrack release Bridgerton Season 3: Covers from the Series retains a solid hold on No. 1, followed by Stephan Moccio’s Legends, Myths & Lavender at No. 2, and Karina Gauvin’s Marie Hubert — Fille du Roy, at No. 3.

The Bridgerton Season 3 soundtrack has a Toronto connection — Strings From Paris. The popular Toronto-based string quartet covers the track pop, which is used during one of the scenes of the Netflix hit series.

There are three newcomers to the Classical Chartz Top Ten this week. The Takacs Quartet offers Schubert String Quartets, which climbs to No. 8 from No. 12 last week. Schubert: String Quartets, D. 112 & 887 includes the composers String Quartet No. 15 in G Major, and String Quartet No. 8 in B-flat major. Takacs Quartet made a notable recording of the G Major quartet back in 1997. The new version is said to be quite distinct in its interpretation, and about two minutes longer.

Just behind Takacs comes the trio of Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Nicola Benedetti & Benjamin Grosvenor with Beethoven’s Triples Concerto. That release debuts on the Classical Chartz at No. 9. The three star performers, Benjamin on piano, Nicola on violin, and Sheku on cello, come together for a sensitive interpretation of one of Beethoven’s subtler pieces. The trio, backed up by the Philharmonia Orchestra with conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali, mine the various moods and colours of the score to create an engaging performance.

At the No. 10 spot, stepping up from No .11 last week, Raphaela Gromes & Olga Scheps perform Chopin Nocturnes. Pianist Olga Scheps and cellist Raphaela Gromes perform unique arrangements (by Julian Riem) of Chopin’s beloved Nocturnes for duo instrumentation. The result is charming, and reveals new ways of hearing the familiar works. The release includes Chopin’s Nocturnes, Op. 9, 62, 32, 55 & 15.
