From today, Gramophone is publishing the Official Specialist Classical Chart here on our website, every week as soon as it’s announced.
Every Friday, you can find out which recordings are proving most popular with the record buying and streaming audience in the UK. The Specialist Classical Chart is compiled by the Official Charts Company, and only features albums released in the past 12 months (and which have not previously been available), and of which 100 per cent of the contents are derived from classical repertoire.
Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s well-received recording of Elgar’s Cello Concerto, recorded with the LSO and Sir Simon Rattle, released by Decca, currently sits atop the charts, while last month’s Recording of the Month, Benjamin Grosvenor’s Chopin concerto disc, also from Decca, sits at Number 9.
There are new entries this week Andreas Staier, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Portland State Chamber Choir. Explore further here: Official Specialist Classical Chart
