Update: 4th Jan 2022

During the current unprecedented situation, Chandos Records continues to trade as normally as possible. As many of our staff are working remotely, we would ask you to submit any queries online here rather than by telephone. CD orders are being despatched on the next working day, but understandably due to the pandemic delivery times will vary and take significantly longer than usual, depending on your location. Please note there are also countries ‘on suspension’ by UK’s Royal Mail. We thank you for your understanding.

“… If you enjoy Part and Gorecki, its worth paying attention to Vasks, particularly his earlier works.”

“… Beyond orchestration, Telemann’s cantatas comport with the norms of his era. Each consists of a sequence of choruses, arias, recitatives, and Lutheran chorales. The voices sound lovely along with a polished orchestral ensemble.”

“… His [Széchényi] dances were very popular, and this Hungarian recording will have greatest appeal to followers of the Strauss dynasty who can stand a bit of kitsch. Light and frothy being the order of the day. Not only are they well constructed and harmonically interesting but Strauss and Lumbye can move over to accommodate Szechenyi … Both pianists play well, and the sound is good, the notes interesting …”

"... The performances here are first rate. Particularly in Urbs Roma I was struck by the wonderfully crisp and articulate string playing from the Liege musicians, and in Organ Symphony sonics are terrific. Everything feels perfectly paced under Kantorow, and balances between full organ and orchestra are well gauged..."

Donald R Vroon – American Record Guide – January/February 2022
“… This is music that deserves to be better known and more often heard. The performances by Gregor Meyer and Ensemble 1684 have a first-rate technical polish and a keen sense of the music’s style and expression. There are only 8 singers here; they cover all the oarts in the double choir music, but the effect is rather thin with only one voice to a part. After all, these were intended to be imposing statements addressed to a congregation accustomed to grandiose Venetian church music… I was bowled over by the clean and crisp delivery of acrobatic vocal lines by the soloists …”
