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.

“… Ultimately, then, this last movement proves a lackluster capstone to an otherwise largely agreeable Beethoven Nine. Reference Recording’s sonics are excellent as ever and Honeck provides an explication of his views on the piece for the liner notes. They’re intriguing to consider – even if the musical results don’t always bear him out.”

“A delightful monograph of a neglected but worthwhile Swedish composer who thrived in fin de siècle Paris… The playing (and singing) on this rewarding issue is an absolute delight from first note to last. It’s blessed with the usual de-luxe BIS sound, recorded in what seems to be the ideal ambience of the Giresta kirka at Örsundsbro in Uppsala county … For those who enjoy such things, the surround option emerges as vivid and impressively detailed, but this is chamber music and hearing it bouncing around the room still seems oddly synthetic for me – unlike BIS’s audiophile standard orchestral surround discs. Besides, the superb stereo … is absolutely ideal for this music. This is a lovely disc, tastefully packaged, and it merits the widest currency.”
