Mozart Symphonies in Official UK Classical Chart

15 April 2009

"Mozart Symphonies 38-41" has re-entered the Official UK Classical chart over a year after it first entered the chart (where it stayed in the Top 20 for 4 weeks!).  Following the double-award win at the 2009 BBC Music Magazine awards the bestselling double album of Mozart's four late symphonies is back in the UK Classical chart at Number 4.

The "magnificent", "exceptional" and "irresistible" recording has been a favourite with the critics and public alike since its release in March 2008.  Here are just a few of the accolades awarded to Sir Charles Mackerras and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra for their wonderful performances.
