Here are the final Soundscan stas before the holidays.
Number 1 in the classical charts is Decca’s green Benedictines.
Number 2 is 50 shades of smut.
Number 3 is the Tabernacle Choir, mourning Mitt Romney’s defeat.
Much as it has been all month. But the fastest riser is interesting. At number 5 is Alisa Weilerstein with a cracking new recording of the Elgar concerto, coupled with Elliott Carter. Who’d have thought there would be such an appetite for Carter?
