No classical record sold 300 copies last weekmain
The Nielsen Soundscan stats are in for the week, and it’s looking bleaker than ever.
The top-selling classical record, Decca’s Monks of Norcia, shifted just 298 units in the USA, physical and digital.
Andrea Bocelli was the only other artist who topped 200.
Worst of all, no entry in the Nielsen top ten was a new release. The classical market is almost wiped out.
