The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 17 July 2016, 5pm

Aled Jones chalks up his 15th week in the Chart while Sol Gabetta is the highest new entry.

The Argentinian-born cellist Sol Gabetta is a rising star in the classical firmament. Her compilation album Cello, featuring her performance of Elgar's Cello Concerto and many other favourites, is this week's highest new entry at No.5.

While Aled Jones holds onto the No.1 spot, there's a host of summer blockbuster soundtracks storming the Top 30, including the new Ghostbusters score from Theodore Shapiro, Rupert Gregson-Williams's music for The Legend of Tarzan and the latest Spielberg-Williams collaboration, Roald Dahl's The BFG, which makes a modest first appearance at No.20 but is sure to rise as that Big, Friendly Giant stomps into UK cinemas this week.
