List #1: The Century's Top Selling Classical Albums

It wouldn’t be a New Year without somebody compiling lists of achievements. Here’s one we (or rather Classic FM) prepared earlier, of New Zealand’s top 300 best-selling classical albums since 2000. Actually, we’ll save a few virtual trees by only including the Top 20 here — and point you to this link for the rest of the countdown.

And, before you ask what this has to do with Trade Me: there are some 562 classical CDs currently listed for sale on Trade Me. This list will point you in the direction of popular classical artists to (a) sample (if you’re a buyer) or (b) sell, if you happen to have them in your possession.
