Navigation for RNZ Concert Chart

As music listeners explore new ways of purchasing and accessing music online, album sales have declined. For this reason, it is becoming harder to compile a credible Top 10 classical album sales chart for New Zealand. 

Instead, the RNZ Concert Chart radio programme will highlight top selling new releases and classic albums from New Zealand and around the world, and dip into the occasional jazz and world music albums as well. 

We appreciate your understanding.

David Houston, RNZ Concert Radio Programmer
