CHAN 10673
Bacewicz: Violin Concertos, Volume 2

“... The performances are exemplary. Kurkowicz, as she has shown in the preceding Chandos releases, has a real feel for Bacewicz’s idiom and the technical ability to deal with its virtuosic demands. She is the star of the show throughout, quite rightly, but is ably supported by orchestra, conductor and a typically fine Chandos recording ...”

Guy Rickards – Tempo  - October 2012


CHAN 9879
Bax: Orchestral Works

‘…in the Chandos Bax series, the recording is exemplary.’
Gramophone on CHAN 9003 (Bax Violin Concerto, etc.)

CHAN 10670
Bowen: Symphonies Nos 1 & 2

"...If you like Romantic and colorful orchestral scores with long lyrical lines, you will love these compositions. Sir Andrew Davis and the BBC Philharmonic perform with sensuous beauty and emotive excitement. Chandos’ lush but clear sound is an added plus."   *****

Robert Moon - Audiophile Audition - 16 January 2012


CHAN 10201
Cui: A Feast in Time of Plague etc.

'It is fluently done, with some entertaining orchestral invention which Polyansky and the players handle colourfully.'
Gramophone

CHAN 10778
Dobrzynski: Symphony No. 2 etc.

 "...The orchestra is outstanding, led by a conductor who has no inhibitions about delivering a full dynamic range, crisp articulation, and meticulous attention to rhythmic accuracy."

Robert Marlow - Fanfare - January/February 2014


CHAN 10439
Dyson: Nebuchadnezzar/ Woodland Suite/Three Songs of Praise

This is the first recording, and Dyson is lucky because it is outstanding. There are no comparisons to make, but can you imagine abetter tenor than Mark Padmore or a better bass than Neal Davies for this music? Do you know a chorus that would sing it better than the BBC Chorus? Is there a conductor who could make it more gripping than Mr Hickox does? No, it is quite wonderful… The Chandos sound is superb.
American Record Guide

CHAN 10570
Elgar: Crown of India/ Imperial March/Coronation March

Mervyn Miller


The Lutyens Trust Newsletter - Spring 2010

CHAN 9888

CHAN 10789
Mascagni: Orchestral Works

 “… The Filharmonica ‘900 Teatro Reggio Torino was founded in 2003, at the initiative of the musicians of Turin’s distinguished opera orchestra. It is a first-rate ensemble, and Noseda conducts fluent , dynamic performances. Chandos’s sound is warm and detailed, and I can recommend this appealing CD.”

Paul Orgel – Fanfare – March/April 2014


CHAN 10596
Moeran: Complete Solo Songs

“…definitely recommended. …

Barry Benesal

CHAN 10740
Parry: Works for Chorus and Orchestra

“A rather wonderful disc comprising almost entirely World Premiere performances of works for orchestra and chorus by Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry... Amazing that these stirring works have lain unrecorded for so long – an essential disc for any lover of English music!”
 
EM Marshall-Luck – Spirited-The Gazette of the English Music Festival – December 2012
 

CHAN 10211
Scott: Neptune/ Symphony No. 3/Piano Concerto

American Record Review

CHAN 10452
Scott: Concerto for Cello and Orchestra/ Symphony No. 1


CHAN 10390
Taneyev: Symphonies Nos 1 and 3

Taneyev’s credentials as a Romantic symphonist are underlined by the Chandos coupling nof the First and tThird, works of strength, personality and formidable craftsmanship. In terms of musical interest and quality of performance… merits attention.
The Telegraph

CHAN 9902
Vaughan Williams: A London Symphony (Original 1913 version)

"...He [Hickox] draws ravishing sounds throughout from the LSO, with an unerring feeling for idiomatic rubato and a powerful control of massive dynamic contrasts... The sumptuous Chandos sound, with an extraordinarily widedynamic  range, adds to the impact of the performance, which comes with a short but valuable and beautifully played fill-up."

The Penguin Guide - 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12


CHAN 0795
Purcell: The Unknown Purcell: Sonatas by Daniel Purcell

“... this well-played recording is a find for those interested in 17th century music.”

Unjustly neglected works enjoy superb advocacy under Richard Hickox’s baton…
