Covid-19: Update: 17th Feb 2021

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. Following Brexit EU customers should view this page regarding taxation. We thank you for your understanding.

Editor’s Choice – Vocal
“Here’s a peach of a recital disc, wonderfully programmed. Louise Alder and Joseph Middleton begin with the familiar – Ravel’s perfumed Shéhérazade and then segue into the byways of French mélodie repertoire, much of it seldom heard … ‘Chère nuit’ … is a gem of a discovery. Alder welcomes the setting of the sun and the sweet scents of the garden as night descends in long, ecstatic phrases, sensitively echoed by Middleton’s piano. It’s truly deserving of the title-track in this beguiling recital.”

“There is a treasure trove here, of information and reflection as well as music… This choir’s singular qualities – responsiveness, sophistication of line and texture, and a chameleonic stylistic acumen that never loses sight of its own core, identifying sound – are all in play here. The choir’s ability to deliver a ferocious and/or primary-coloured sound while still clarifying harmony and avoiding bombast is a valuable in the apex of Howells Collegium Regale – which really sends shivers down your spine especially with the organ blowing tight and reedy – as it is in the Giles Swayne and Julian Anderson Magnificats that need total presence and accuracy across all their rhythmic bracken…”

“… Sakari is unquestionably a brilliant player but in repertory such as this, where virtuosity takes a back seat to musical insight and interpretative depth, he shows something very special. His interpretations mix the long tradition of Franck performances with something distinctly his own… This is a truly outstanding recording of Franck’s organ music.”

“… John Wilson leads a vivid performance with attractive lyrical byways and a rousing conclusion … The recording made in the Church of St Augustine in Kilburn, captures all the performances with demonstration-quality levels of transparency, richness and presence.”
