The Classic FM Chart of the Year 2014

New Year's Day, 5pm-8pm. John Brunning counts down the biggest-selling classical albums of 2014

2014 was the year that Nicola Benedetti's Scottish-themed album Homecoming topped the chart for several weeks.

But there was strong competition from the compilation, Classic FM Hall of Fame 2014.

Reality TV finalists Rhydian, Lucy Kay and Jonathan Antoine also all topped the chart, and guitarists Milos and Craig Ogden both had hit albums. How will they fare in the annual tally?

And as in previous years Ludovico Einaudi and the King of the Waltz Andre Rieu were always fixtures in the Chart. But which of their albums made it into the final line-up of the year? 

John Brunning will reveal all.
