Number 1 Hit

Interesting article in the Washington Post:

On Jan. 14, the violinist Hilary Hahn scored a rare gig for a classical music performer: She appeared on “The Tonight Show.” And not just any “Tonight Show,” but the “Tonight Show” during the final days of Conan O’Brien’s brief tenure as host. Everybody was watching. So it came as no surprise that Hahn’s new album, “Bach: Violin and Voice,” debuted that week at No. 1 on the Billboard classical charts.

And how many sales did she generate after her appearance on the Tonight Show?

1,000 CDs sold. Hard to believe. Number 1 on a Billboard chart with only 1,000 CDs sold.
