The Classic FM Chart - 31 August 2014, 5pm

A stunning new recording of Bach's Partitas is this week's highest new entry.

This week's highest new entry comes from 27-year old pianist Igor Levit, hailed by many as the greatest talent of his time. 

Following on from his critically-acclaimed debut album, in which he explored the late Beethoven sonatas, Levit now turns his attention to Bach's partitas, one of which he describes as "incredibly emotional, it stands no comparison. It really shakes you up. This is music of the utmost perfection!"

It enters the chart at No. 19.
