Paul Westcott

We are saddened to announce the death of Paul Westcott. He died of cancer on Christmas day, one day before his 53rd birthday.
Paul was Press Officer at Chandos Records for 25 years and was instrumental in its success.
He was much loved in the industry and by all at Chandos right up to this day and will be much remembered for his huge knowledge of music, optimism, dedication and love for the industry and those that worked within it. RIP Paul. We miss you.
Ralph Couzens, MD Chandos Records.

 

We are delighted - and extremely proud - to have been awarded Gramophone's coveted 'label of the year'. Editor Martin Cullingford writes "A commitment to the finest artists and the highest sound quality, the Colchester-based company is a shining beacon for the art of recording".

 

We are saddened to hear that the conductor Bramwell Tovey has passed away. Known for his work with Brass Bands & orchestras, he will be greatly missed.

“The Wolfenbüttel composer Schürmann proves to be a master of secular and sacred cantata on a CD worth listening to… The singer quartet largely dispenses with vibrato and finds great homogeneity in the tutti parts. Marie Luise Werneburg has a glittering soprano voice and also masters the few coloratura masterfully and beautifully. The same can be said of her colleague Verena Gropper. Altus David Erler sings very naturally and easily. Hans Jörg Mammel has an agile tenor. The bass Wolf Matthias Friedrich sings particularly calmly and thus gains great credibility. The booklet is of desirable detail. The CD is a total success.”

“Lars Vogt gives the two Mendelssohn piano concertos a dramatic impact that gives the works a surprisingly somber aura.”

“Telemann's Michaelis oratorio 1762 shows the Hamburg composer at the peak of his creative power even in the last decade of his life… The Cologne Academy under Michael Alexander Willens offers the work in an extremely differentiated and transparent rendition, so that every word (even in the chorus) is understandable and vitality and spiritual dimensions are equally evident at all times…”
