The Classic FM Chart - 9 February 2014

Brilliant Chinese pianist Ji Liu deposes Classical Voices from the No.1 spot.

Ji Liu 's Piano Reflections  has finally toppled Classical Voices from the No.1 position, which it had occupied since 1 December last year. 

It's a fine achievement for the young Chinese pianist whose debut album features brand new recordings of the most beautiful piano classics of all time.

Elsewhere in the chart, there are three new entries: Max Richter ’s 2002 debut album Memoryhouse is reissued to give new listeners a 65-minute journey through the beauty and tragedy of 20th century Europe; flautist Emmanuel Pahud joins with Les Vents Francais to explore the repertoire of French wind music; and the Iranian-American harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani enters the chart with his recording to mark C.P.E. Bach 's 300th anniversary next month.
