Both John Suchet's Album of the Week, Adiemus by Karl Jenkins, and John Brunning's Drive Discovery, The Piano Album by Alistair McGowan, have entered the Classic FM Chart in the top two spots! The 50 Greatest Pieces of Classical Music by the London Philharmonic Orchestra holds onto its place at no. 3, meanwhile Classic FM presenter Alexander Armstrong is our third new entry this week at no. 4. The top ten also includes this week's highest climber - Max Richter's Three Worlds - Music from Woolf Works which has climbed eleven places from no. 20 up to no. 9.

Just outside the top ten is this week's biggest faller, Hans Zimmer's soundtrack for Dunkirk, which is down ten places from no. 1 to no. 11. Elsewhere in the middle of the chart, Classic FM Silver re enters the chart at no. 13, just above the latest release from Angela Hewitt at no. 14. Bill Murray's first classical album has also entered the Classic FM Chart at no. 19. 

In the lower third of the chart, Max Richter's Blue Notebooks has re-entered at no. 23, meanwhile the Takacs Quartet playing Dvorak has entered the chart at no. 27 with further re-entries from Ludovico Einaudi and Karl Jenkins.
