Classic FM Chart - Sunday 7 June 2015, 5pm

A seminal piece of 20th century minimalist music is this week's only new entry.

This week’s highest and only new entry in the Chart is a dazzling performance by New York-based Ensemble Signal of Steve Reich’s 1976 masterpiece, Music for 18 Musicians.

Founded in 2008, Ensemble Signal - one of the most vital of today’s classical music groups - offers the broadest possible audience access to a diverse range of contemporary works. This album showcases the ensemble’s tremendous, unstoppable energy.
