The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 12 July 2015, 5pm

It's a case of duelling guitars as the pluckers dominate the chart, but look out! Mahler's on his way.

Summer weather brings out the guitar lovers in us and Craig Ogden has done the unimaginable - continuing to hold back André Rieu and dominate the Classic FM Chart, with a little help from his friends. And not only is Craig holding on to the No.1 spot, one of his other albums - Summer Guitar  - has also returned to the chart. But there's a battle brewing with Milos Karadaglic. His two previous successes, Latino and The Guitar are both back in the chart, as is an older maestro's seasonal offering - John Williams's The Spanish Guitar.

It's not all guitars though. Probably the most impressive entry in the chart is Mahler's Complete Works - a 16-CD box set which is retailing at less than £2 per album. Now that's a summer treat.
