The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 4 September 2016, 5pm

Andre Rieu consolidates his position as the world's greatest olympian violinist.

After storming straight to the finishing line last week, Andre Rieu's Viva Olympia holds onto the top spot, with Jonathan Antoine a close second in silver position.

Elsewhere in this week's Chart, there's the highest new entry for harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani. He tackles one of the greatest masterpieces of the Baroque repertoire – Bach's Goldberg Variations – with fresh eyes and his uniquely virtuosic way, taking the listener on a truly inspiring journey of varied moods and approaches.
