The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 8 September 2013

The Real Classical's nine week run at No.1 is brought to an end by the mighty Andre Rieu.

This week, Andre Rieu managed to topple The Real Classical after its astonishing nine weeks reign at the top of the Chart. His Rieu Royale album moved up ten places into the No. 1 spot.

There was also a new entry for Sir Simon Rattle with the Berlin Philharmonic with their new recording of Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances and The Bells. 

And the bi-centennial onslaught by Verdi on the charts continued with Sir Antonio Pappano's album of Sacred Verdi entering at No. 17.
