The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 20 March 2016, 5pm

Daniel Barenboim's majestic account of Elgar is this week's highest new entry.

While there's no change at the top of the chart, this week's highest new entry comes from maestro Daniel Barenboim who is continuing his acclaimed Elgar series with the landmark First Symphony. It's the first time that he has returned to recording Elgar’s symphonic works since the 1970s. The album was recorded live at Berlin’s renowned Philharmonie, with the Berlin Staatskapelle.

The next highest new entry at 20 comes from one of the world's leading orchestrators, arrangers and conductors Matt Dunkley. Having worked on films such as Inception, The Dark Knight and Black Swan, Six Cycles is a rich cinematic soundscape with stirring builds of Wagnerian grandeur.
