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.

“… Good notes, good sound, and great music.”
“… Good notes, good sound, and great music.”
Alan Becker – American Record Guide – March/April 2021
"... It'd be hard to imagine a better introduction to Schmitt's music than this. The performances are outstanding. Platt's singing in Salome and Chooi's playing in Legende are exemplary. Falletta's conducting is first rate, her tempos and phrasing ensuring coherence in the music. She's alert to every nuance, which these pieces have in abundance. The Bufflo Phil sounds radiant, lavishing TLC on every work... If, like me, you an never get enough of fin-de-siecle excess, this recording's for you."

"... Wherever I look in Jake Runestad's music, I fine meaningful, engaging, and accessible ideas that make me want to sing. From the sound of things, Kantoreifeels the same way."

"... Performances of both works are full-blooded, totally sympathetic to Novak's style. Stilec's conducting shows a firm grasp of the beauties of this still underrated master."

“…Hasse Borup takes on the most difficult of these works, with apparent ease, and Staupe gives his best, which in the Second Sonata is a lot.”

Michelle Thomson – American Record Guide – March/April 2021
“I associate Thea Musgrave with avant-garde musical adventures, but this choral program reveals a startling range of style and sensibility, from the daring to the disarmingly conservative. The performances are by turns sweetly lyrical and intensely aggressive, as the music requires… After these complex, layered pieces [Rorate coeli/The Voices of Our Ancestors] so full of effects, the most recent work, Missa Brevis, from 2018, comes as a relief, a point of relaxation. It’s like a master painter showing she can do a simple sketch. It is homophonic, diatonic, and heartfelt… Rounding out this welcome release are the excellent notes by Peter Conway. The recordings from St Mary’s and Advent Lutheran in New York, are clear enough, with just the right amount of churchy echo and ambiance.”

"... All these works are well played, and in Visions well sung. The Royal Scotsmen handle their duties with vigor or sensitivity as needed, and Tingaud's conducting is fine."
