Up 34. Highest position since 2007. Zipoli is a Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder.
Very little is known about the italian Baroque composer Domenico Zipoli, whose stately Elevazione became something of a classical music hit in the 1990s thanks to its exposure on Classic FM. Elevazione is scored for oboe, cello, organ and strings; its sedate pace and stately sound have guaranteed its use in both weddings and funerals in recent years. Since being championed by Classic FM, the piece has appeared on countless classical compilations over the last fifteen years although, still, Elevazione remains something of an enigma. Beyond its instrumentation, very little is known about the piece.
