Classic Arts News   Magdelena Kozenš's Lamento Debuts on Billboard Chart
Mezzo-soprano Magdelena Kozenš's Lamento made its first appearance on the Billboard classical chart this week at number seven.

The album, recorded with conductor Reinhard Goebel and Musica Antiqua K‹ln, is a collection of vocal works by Johann Sebastian Bach and his sons Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach.

Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble's Silk Road Journeys: beyond the Horizon topped the chart for the 17th time in the last 19 weeks.

Two albums from Andr_ Rieu moved up the chart, perhaps driven by the violist's appearances in PBS pledge-drive programming: Tuscany jumped from number seven to number three, and Live in Dublin moved from number 13 to number ten.

Other movers included the first complete recording of Bernstein's Peter Pan, which moved from number 15 to number nine, its highest point thus far, in its eighth week on the chart.

Il Divo's debut album remained at the top of the classical crossover chart. Cook, Dixon & Young's Volume One, which debuted on the jazz chart last week, turned up on the crossover chart this week at number 12. The trio of African-American tenors sings jazz, opera, gospel, blues, and Broadway songs.
