The Classic FM Chart - 29 June 2014

A compilation aimed at anyone looking for a glimpse into the world of classical music enters the chart at No. 2

While Classic FM Hall of Fame 2014 holds on to the top spot for another week, Rhydian's long residency at No.2 has ended, pushed back by a new entry from the compilation, I Don't Like Classical Music but I Really Like This.

Another exciting new entry at No.5 is John Powell's soundtrack for the new animated feature movie, How to Train Your Dragon 2. And a weighty boxed set from the late, great Claudio Abbado enters at No. 11.
