Billboard’s “Traditional Classical Albums” for Feb. 1, featuring the NC Symphony at No. 1.


The NC Symphony may not be toppermost of the poppermost - but the ensemble is at the loftiest of lofty perches on Billboard’s “Traditional Classical Albums” sales chart. Cellist Zuill Bailey’s “Britten: Cello Symphony & Sonata,” recorded in part with Grant Llewellyn and the symphony at Raleigh’s Meymandi Concert Hall, debuts at No. 1 on the chart for Feb. 1.
