New releases 15th april

There isn’t much movement in this week’s Classic FM Chart. Peaceful Piano, which entered the chart last week at no. 1, remains in the top spot. John Brunning’s Drive Discovery Album from last week, Northern Lights by Cantus, enters the chart at no. 2, pushing Classic FM: Hall of Fame - The Silver Edition to no. 4 and Rami's My Journey down to no. 5. The rest of the top 10 includes many of the same albums as last week, with very little movement. 

In the rest of the chart, this week’s highest climber is Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack for Gladiator, up 9 places from no. 24 to no. 15. Gladiator - Special Anniversary Edition is also this week’s only re-entry, only just squeezing back into the top 30 at no. 29. Meanwhile, Sleep by Max Richter is this week’s biggest faller, dropping 13 places from no. 8 to no. 21. 

As well as the new entry from Cantus, there are a further four new entries this week, including Solipsism and Prehension by Joep Beving, Yo Yo Ma’s new Bach album and the new release from the Villiers Quartet, all in the lower third of the chart.
