Handel: Chandos Anthems Box Set
CHAN 0692
Corelli: Sonatas for Strings
CHAN 0754
Christmas Concertos and Cantatas

Sultry seduction surfaces in Susan Gritton’s reading of Alessandro Scarlatti’s ‘Cantata for the Birth of Our Lord’. Collegium Musicum 90 and Simon Standage are also on seductive form in famous ‘Christmas’ concertos by Vivaldi, Manfredini and Corelli
Classic FM Magazine

CHAN 10014
Poulenc: Works for Solo Piano
CHAN 10122
Bax: The Symphonies

"... Vernon Handley is in total sympathy with Bax’s muse and his direction is authoratitive as well as idiomatic. Superb sound from the Chandos and BBC engineers. We would not be without this set."

The Penguin Guide - 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12

CHAN 10132
Bax: Piano Music

'If you've been attracted to Bax by Chandos' recent series of the symphonies (CHAN 10122(5)), you'll find this a fascinating companion set.'
BBC Music Magazine

CHAN 10144
Debussy: Complete Works for Orchestra

…recordings which generally represent the state of the art. There are excellent soloists in the concertante works. The subtlety and atmosphere of La boîte à joujoux are captured splendidly, and the concertante works are equally sensitive… very desirable indeed.
The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

CHAN 10194
Harty: Complete Orchestral Works

"...The performances are excellent, and thev ery appealing Variations on a Dublin Air and Harty’s arrangement of the haunting Londonderry Air have bee added as a most enjoyable bonus on this CD."

The Penguin Guide – 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12

CHAN 10224
Mendelssohn: Symphonies

The Philharmonia was in top form when these recordings were made, and the players dutifully follow their leader, Walter Weller.

CHAN 10251
Ravel: Orchestral Works

…for those who above all simply wish to luxuriate in some of the most spellbinding scores in existence,Torteliers set could well prove to be the most rewarding of all… serious fans will prefer Tortelier.
Classic CD

CHAN 10316
Martinu: Symphonies

Conductor Bryden Thomson and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra perform with passion and purpose in this, the find of the year.
"Time, ‘The Best Music of 1992’"

CHAN 10324
Mayerl: The Piano Music of Billy Mayerl

Three disc of music by the so-called English Scott Joplin may seem too much of a good thing. Yet Parkin effects the maximum variety throughout these delightful miniatures, with spontaneity and sheer joie-de-vivre always present.
BBC Music Magazine

CHAN 10330
Tippett: Symphonies/ New Year Suite

Hickox’s Tippett cycle goes from strength to strength.
BBC Music

CHAN 10343
Verdi: Complete Preludes, Overtures and Ballet Music

This treasure-trove is a comprehensive survey of all the purely orchestral music from Verdi’s operas… Edward Downes who conducts with passion and power, shows himself once again to be one of his country’s leading Verdians.
The Times on CHAN 9787(4) (Verdi set)

CHAN 10371
Liszt: Works for Piano and Orchestra

‘Lortie brings powerful and flamboyant playing…adding enormous vigour and vibrancy to the disc.’
The Pianist on CHAN 9864 (Volume 2)

CHAN 10385
Vaughan Williams: Christmas Music

"...The late Richard Hickox leads a beautiful performance of all three works. Indeed, his Fantasia on Christmas Carols I think the best I’ve heard. Sarah Fox is sweet-voiced in both On Christmas Night and The First Nowell. Roderick Williams (or maybe Simon Keenlyside) may well be my favorite baritone right now. He possesses a beautiful voice which he uses intelligently. His breath control seems to know no limit and allows him to phrase anywhere he wants and to subtly color his line. The choir and orchestra are thoroughly professional, but it’s the ensemble and the music that become the stars. Highly recommended."

Steve Schwartz


CHAN 10392
Tchaikovsky: Complete Symphonies

"Janson’s Tchaikovsky series, which includes Manfred, is self-recommending. The full romantic power of the music is consistently conveyed and, above all, the music-making is urgently spontaneous throughout, ith the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra always committed and fresh, helped by the richly atmospheric sound. If you want all six symphonies, this is a supreme bargain..."

The Penguin Guide - 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12

CHAN 10449
Dvorak: Rusalka

A final choice must remain marginal, but anyone who wants a new-minted version of one of the most magical of all operas – with the harp signalling the otherworldly magic of Rusalka as Water nymph, more atmospherically recorded than on Decca – this new Chandos version makes an excellent choice.
Gramophone Editor’s Choice

CHAN 10468
Field: The Piano Concertos

"...The soloist, Micéal O’Rourke, is very persuasive and he receives admirable support from Bammert and the London Mozart players..."

The Pengiun Guide – 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12

CHAN 10500
Prokofiev: Complete Symphonies

It is only when confronted by a set of performances of such general excellence that one turns to points of detail; no-one, buying this set will ever regret purchasing it. Noel Goodwin’s excellent informative original notes have been retained. This is a splendid set which has not at all been outclassed by later rivals
International Record Review

CHAN 10529
The Film Music of Ralph Vaughan Williams, Volumes 1, 2 and 3

“… these CDs constitute a most valuable addition to our knowledge of a great composer’s work, who, throughout his creative life, had the constant ability to surprise and delight his audience; this set is strongly recommended.”

Robert Matthew Walker

International Record Review - July/August 2009

CHAN 10553
Beethoven: Complete String Quartets

“The eight discs in this set, recorded between 2003 and 2006 … are available separately but I can’t imagine that anyone hearing only one disc wouldn’t want the whole set.
I love the chance to listen to the quartets out of order, noticing how intertextually connected they are and noticing how the quartet’s interpretations of the early and middle quartets are influenced by the later quartets. I love the tempo choices, the pacing, the way pitches rub against  one another, and I love the dramatic-yet logical way that phrases follow one another. I particularly love the lyricism abd tge distinct lack of superficiality and flash that these musicians bring to the music that I thought (before hearing these readings) that I knew extremely well.”
“.. the Borodin Quartet has become my set of choice …” “…there is just so much to learn about Beethoven (and musical possibilities) from the Borodin Quartet.”

Elaine Fine

Contemporaries of Mozart Collection

“…There is an obvious enthusiasm for all the music that the London Mozart Players perform.” “…With good sound and liner notes from each release included in one booklet, this is definitely recommended.”

‘A strong challenger to Britten’s own historic recording of his searing opera and perhaps the best thing Richard Hickox has yet done on disc. The Chandos recording quality is first rate, the chorus overwhelming and the casting inspired’.
Sunday Telegraph
