 Presto Chart, The Presto Chart - November 2022

Classical Chart November 2022Steven Isserlis's exploration of a 'golden decade' of music for cello and piano (featuring works by the young Richard Strauss, Luise Adolpha Le Beau, Dvořák, Bruch and Ernst David Wagner) on Hyperion comfortably led the field last month - read David's full review of the album here.

Víkingur Ólafsson's tribute to his hero György Kurtág, which occupied the top spot in October, maintains its foothold in the Top 10. Its release also seems to have sparked a resurgence of interest in the Icelandic pianist's 2018 Bach album - which was named Recording of the Year at the 2019 BBC Music Magazine Awards, and currently stands as our best-selling recording of the decade!
