Leif Ove Andsnes "A Beethoven Journey" EPK

14:31

Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes has three new entries in this week's chart.

While last week's new No.1, the compilation Classically Chilled , holds firmly onto the top spot, there's a three-pronged attack on this week's Chart by the brilliant Norwegian pianist, Leif Ove Andsnes . For his Beethoven Journey project, Andsnes has performed and recorded all five of Beethoven’s piano concertos with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. The collection of all five re-enters the Chart this week at No.6, while the album of Piano Concerto No.5 is a re-entry at 18, and the collection of Nos.1 and 3 is new in at No.26.

This week's highest new entry though goes to a legend of 1970s pop music, Mike Batt. The man who turned The Wombles into a chart-topping supergroup, and penned Bright Eyes for Art Garfunkel has released an album of his classical-styled tracks . It's also this coming week's Drive Featured Album on Classic FM.
