The score to Avengers: Endgame by Alan Silvestri has jumped up from No. 12 to No. 1 in this week's chart, following the film's box office success, as does Bear McCreary's score to Godzilla – King of Monsters, which jumps up 14 places to No. 5 this week. Also making a jump in the chart is new entry Lise Davidsen, the self-titled album by the up-and-coming Norwegian soprano

Recorded with the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen, the dramatic soprano's self-titled debut album features Richard Strauss' most-loved lieder and songs, including; Four Last Songs, as well as arias from Elisabeth in Wagner's Tannhäuser, the role in which Lise Davidsen will make her debut at Bayreuth Festival, and "Es gibt ein Reich" from Strauss'  Ariadne auf Naxos, the title role in which her 2017 Glyndebourne debut was named "one of those ‘I was there' moments" by The Times.
