After months of dross and crossover ruling the markets, the old man is back where he belongs: on top of Parnassus.
The new Daniel Barenboim set of Beethoven symphonies on Decca registers at numbers one and three on Nielsen Soundscan’s point-of-sale charts. And HJ Lim’s set of the complete sonatas is in at number eight. How very retro….
Here’s the chart…. and (UPDATE) here‘s how they did it.
1 Beethoven for all/ Barenboim (Decca)
2 Moonrise Kingdom soundtrack
4 Classical stress relief
5 Dvorak cello concerto (Telarc)
6 Eric Whitacre (Decca)
7 David Garrett (Decca)
8 Beethoven sonatas (EMI)
10 Yuja Wang (DG)
