Guitarist Craig Ogden’s new recording ‘Craig Ogden and Friends’ has knocked André Rieu off the top of the chart.
The guitarist’s latest recording is a collection of music recorded with some of the biggest names in the classical world, including cellist Natalie Clein and pianist Ji Liu. He knocks André Rieu's 'Magic of the Violin' off the top spot, after seven weeks at No.1.
‘Craig Ogden and Friends’ includes music by J.S. Bach, Ravel and Albéniz, as well as more modern pieces by the likes of Einaudi and John Lennon.
Craig is no stranger to the No.1 spot – his debut solo album ‘The Guitarist’ went straight to No.1 in 2010, and he has since become one of classical music’s biggest stars.
Craig Ogden was a guest on last week's Charlotte Green's Culture Club and you can listen again to his interview here.
