Classic FM Chart: Ready Player One soundtrack holds No. 1

Ready Player One

For the second week in a row, Alan Silvestri's soundtrack to the sci-fi adventure movie Ready Player One holds onto the No. 1 spot in the Classic FM Chart.

This week's Classic FM Chart sees little movement in the top three, with Blake and Ludovico Einaudi switching places at No. 2 and No. 3. However, Howard Shore's soundtrack to Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship is a re-entry at No. 4, meaning Shore occupies a tenth of this week's top 30 with his music for Lord of the Rings.

It's bad news for Robin Ticciati and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at No. 29, as their Brahms: The Symphonies album drops 21 places from last week's position.

There are two new entries this week: the first comes from the Bavarian Royal Symphony Orchestra with their 2016 recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 3, while the second is Paul Lewis' new album of Haydn piano sonatas.
