The Classic FM Chart - 28 December 2014, 5pm

A unique take on introducing classical music is the final, highest new entry of the year.

Christmas well and truly made its mark on the last Classic FM chart of 2014, although none of the multitude of carol compilations succeeded in toppling Andre Rieu's Love in Venice from the top of the chart.

The highest new entry at no. 25 is I don't like classical music, but I really like this. This double album presents classical music from a different perspective: music for everyone looking for a glimpse into the world of classical. The album cover was designed by French cartoonist Sempé and the booklet contains a comical short story by Justin Nignard, telling the story of an old Maestro who's willing to go a long way to introduce classical music to a non-typical classical audience.
