A surprise turn in this week's CLASSIC fM chart gives the No. 1 and 2 positions to new entries. This week's No. 1 slot goes to Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs) performed by Beth Gibbons and The Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra. Lang Lang's new release Piano Book makes it in at No. 2. Lang Lang, One of the world's biggest classical stars, returns with this brand new collection of pieces which first inspired him to play the piano and led him on his path to international stardom. The recording, his first new studio album in three years, marks his return to Universal Music Group and Deutsche Grammophon – the label he first signed to in 2003.

Lang Lang says: "I want to take every music lover on a journey through my favourite piano pieces. I hope to inspire as well as motivate every piano student to remain focused during daily practice, and to play and understand these essential pieces for what they really are: true masterpieces!"
