chart-topping composer

Exciting times for the CBSO Chorus with our project with Sir Anthony Hopkins and the CBSO, ‘Composer,’ at No.1 in the Specialist Classical chart in the UK.

I also notice that the chart has the Petrenko/RLPO recording of Rachmaninov 3, which I blogged about recently (‘5-star Rachmaninov’ – 16th January 2012), at No.10.

No doubt Hopkins Hollywood pulling power is partly responsible, but I do think the music stands up well to repeated listens.

And has deservedly highlighted the musical talents of one of our best actors.

The CBSO Chorus has a discography which is the envy of many professional outfits.

And later in the year, we’re anticipating an addition with the release of a concert recording of a new choral work.

More details as I get them.

    Is it me or is there a striking resemblance between Messrs Hopkins and Gabriel? Silence of the Lambs Lying Down on Broadway perhaps?
