Christopher O'Riley Radiohead Disc Debuts on Billboard Crossover Chart

Classic Arts News   Christopher O'Riley Radiohead Disc Debuts on Billboard Crossover Chart
Hold Me to This, pianist Christopher O'Riley's second CD of music by the rock band Radiohead, made its first appearance on the Billboard classical crossover chart this week at number 18.

Like its predecessor, True Love Waits, Hold Me to This consists of expanded "reimaginings," rather than transcriptions, of its source materials. O'Riley, host of the public radio program From the Top, has also produced a book of his Radiohead arrangements.

Otherwise, very little changed on the crossover chart: Il Divo's self-titled album remained at number one, with the soundtrack to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith at number two and Josh Groban's Closer at number three.

Yo-Yo Ma continued his reign on the classical chart, with Silk Road Journeys: Beyond the Horizon at number one for the tenth straight week, Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone at number four, and Vivaldo's Cello at number 10.

Movers on the classical chart included violist Andr_ Rieu's Tuscany, which jumped from number seven to number three, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's America's Choir: Favorite Songs, Hymns & Anthems, which shot from number 19 to number eight.
