Two classical bestsellers in the US this week

At a time when 1,000 sales qualifies as a classical bestseller, we are delighted to see that two new releases broke the 2,000 barrier last week, according to Nielsen Soundscan ratings.

One was a Catholic devotional record. O Emanuel, from J J Wright.

The other was Joyce DiDonato, In War and Peace, evidently making waves.

The next top-selling record barely cleared 400.

    My hope is that the new album ‘In War & Peace’ by Joyce DiDonato will become the icon of nowadays troublesome world.
    Chapeau for a human being which is so connected to the daily life through her art.
