The Classic FM Chart - 15 June 2014

Classic FM Hall of Fame 2014 holds on to the top spot for a phenomenal seventh week. Will new entries from two pianists threaten its reign?

A pair of pianists have the two highest new entries in this week's chart. James Rhodes enters at No. 9 with Five - his fifth recital album in five years. It includes works by Bach, Beethoven and Chopin, and Liszt's arrangement of Robert Schumann

Schumann also appears on Marc-André Hamelin's new album, On the Overgrown Path, which is the second highest new entry at No. 11. Hamelin puts Schumann together with another composer who you might not expect would complement his music - Leos Janacek. But it works magnificently.
