Bernstein's Peter Pan Debuts on Billboard Classical Chart

The first complete recording of Leonard Bernstein's musical Peter Pan debuted on the Billboard classical chart this week at number 11.

The CD restores music that was discarded from the musical when it ran on Broadway in 1950 and '51. It features musical theater veteran Linda Eder and baritone Daniel Narducci. Alexander Frey is the conductor.

Also new to the chart was a recording of Grieg's Peer Gynt, conducted by Paavo Järvi and featuring the Estonian National Symphony, at number 17.

Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble's Silk Road Journeys: Beyond the Horizon remained at number one for the 12th straight week.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir enjoyed a good week, with its Choose Something Like A Star jumping from number ten to number two, the album's peak position. Meanwhile, the group's America's Choir: Favorite Songs, Hymns, & Anthems moved from number 12 to number seven. A third album, Peace Like a River, dropped from number nine to number ten.

Il Divo's debut album maintained its hold on the top of the classical crossover chart. Two albums debuted on the chart: Amici Forever's Defined and the soundtrack album to War of the Worlds, which features a score by John Williams. Williams' music for Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is also on the chart at number two.
