The Classic FM Chart - 8 February 2015, 5pm

Simon Rattle's 60th birthday celebrations get off to a good start with a re-entry into the Chart.

André Rieu remains at the top of the Chart for another week, but there's a re-entry for Alfie Boe at No.4 with the Love was a Dream album - his tribute to the great operetta songs of Franz Lehár.

And 60th-birthday boy Sir Simon Rattle's stunning cycle of Beethoven symphonies with the Vienna Philharmonic re-enters the Chart at No.26.
