The Classic FM Chart - 14 December 2014, 5pm

It's jingle all the way in this week's chart - with an interlude from Argerich, Abbado and Mozart.

The Chart has well and truly been taken over by the season's festivities this week with carols and choirs a-plenty.

The only non-Yuletide new entry comes from the great pianist Martha Argerich at No. 26. She reunited with the late, great conductor Claudio Abbado shortly before his passing to perform two magnificent piano concertos by Mozart. Described by one critic as 'overwhelmingly beautiful', this recording makes for a lasting testimonial to one of classical music's great creative partnerships.
