The Classic FM Chart - 1 June 2014

Ludovico Einaudi has another new chart entry - Lavinia is playing his greatest hits on the harp.

A former Album of the Week on Classic FM, the music of Ludovico Einaudi played on the harp by Lavinia Meijer is this week's highest new entry.

Will her special brand of peace and calm be enough to push her past Godzilla next week and take on Classic FM Hall of Fame 2014 and Rhydian, still sitting tight in the top two positions?

Elsewhere there's a fascinating new entry at 17 from the pen of Christoph Willibald Gluck. His version of La Clemenza di Tito pre-dates Mozart's by some 40 years. And another superb piece of theatre, Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story gets a complete new reading with an all-American cast directed by Michael Tilson Thomas. That enters the chart at 18.
