Chart 17th September

There are plenty of reasons for Ludovico Einaudi to celebrate this week, as he has three very special moments in the Classic FM Chart. Firstly, his album Divenire, which is 10 years old this year, makes its 150th appearance in the Classic FM Chart. Equally as monumental, his 2015 album Elements has now featured in the Classic FM Chart 100 times. Finally, his 2011 album titled Islands has now featured in the top 10 of the Classic FM Chart for all of 2017 so far, a staggering thirty-six weeks. 

Einaudi’s achievements are joined by five new albums in the top half of the chart, including the soundtrack for 1986 horror film Blue Velvet at no. 4, the soundtrack to video game Destiny 2 at no 5., I Love My Love at no. 6, Schubert’s piano sonatas played by Kristian Zimerman at no. 9 and Monteverdi’s Vespers sung by the Dunedin Consort at no. 11. 

There isn’t a stand out highest climber this week, but there is a considerable drop for Peaceful Piano which falls nineteen places to no. 28.
