Classic FM Chart - Sunday 14 June 2015, 5pm

A crowd funded album is this week's highest new entry.

The second album from the entrepreneurial pianist Emmanuel Vass was financed by crowd funding - and it's paid off: he's got the highest new entry in the Classic FM Chart at No.4. The album has a water theme, featuring works by such composers  as Liszt, Chopin, and Debussy, as well as Vass's own arrangements of three traditional sea shanties.

And at No.10 there’s another new entry: Ysaye's Sonatas for solo violin were all sketched out in 24 hours during the summer of 1923. Russian virtuoso Alina Ibragimova gives them bravura, witty performances.
