March 3, 2012

There are eight new entries this week: Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring from the Budapest Festival Orchestra; Kalkbrenner piano concertos from Howard Shelley; Brahms's German Requiem from the Monteverdi Choir; Vivaldi's sacred works for soprano from Elin Manahan Thomas and Florilegium; Wagner's symphonies from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra; Spohr's Seventh and Ninth Symphonies from Orchestra Della Svizzera Italiana; Debussy and Szymanowski piano works from Rafał Blechacz; and Sibelius's Symphonies Nos 2 and 5 from the Minnesota Orchestra under Osmo Vänskä. Isabelle Faust's recording of Berg and Beethoven violin concertos knocks Anthony Hopkins's 'Composer' from the top spot.
