16 August 2015, 18:55

There are new entries galore and a return to the top spot for Craig Ogden in this week's Classic FM Chart.

Guitarist Craig Ogden's new album Craig Ogden and Friends returns to number 1 this week after a few weeks in which the new Classically Chilled album has hogged the top spot.

This week's highest re-entry at number 5 is Leif Ove Andsnes's The Beethoven Journey. And at number 10 there's a new entry for Daniel Barenboim, Gustavo Dudamel and the Staatskapelle Berlin whose Brahms: The Piano Concertos has been John Suchet's Album of the Week this week.
