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.

“… as in previous installments of Giltburg’s complete recording, the interpretations of Sonatas Nos. 30 through 32 are marked by a riveting rhetoric. A highly personal rubato, immensely subtle dynamic nuances, colorations, shadings, all make sense and are undeniably efficient in their proportionality for a profound experience of the music. One never has the impression that Giltburg’s playing is researched or even mannered, no, he impresses as a clever, spontaneous and honest narrator at the piano.”  *****

“… With a lot of energy, enthusiasm but also sensuality the Orsino Ensemble and Pavel Koleskinov at the piano play French music for wind instruments by Roussel, Debussy, Saint-Saëns, Chaminade, Koechlin and Caplet. The spontaneous and communicative music-making of the five musicians … can only inspire. The excellent recording technique guarantees maximum audibility and presence. “ *****

“… Accompanied on piano by James Baillieu and with Timothy Ridout on viola, Walker once again confirms his high standing as a flutist. He plays very expressively, sometimes ecstatically powerful and sharp, then again sensual and warm, thus showing how much he has mastered his instrument, from which he can bring out the most diverse colors.” *****

“… The Norwegian Radio Orchestra, led by Peruvian conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya, plays at a high level and with the right sense for colors and dynamics. They bring out the brilliant melodicism, powerful rhythms and ardent passion of this music. The CD is worth a few nuggets of Inca gold.” ****

“… Under the direction of the passionate baroque musician Richard Savino, the ensemble has succeeded in bringing this baroque music from Latin America to life. The various folklorisms are expressed as well as artfully thought-out music, performed with a sense of atmosphere and playfulness, or rather, especially in the case of the female singers, with a great deal of enthusiasm. In the instrumental ensemble, the stylishly restrained use of local instruments such as guitar and castanets bring welcome splashes of tonal color.” ****

“… I like Blomstedt’s Second Brahms very much. It has the right mix of introspection, thoughtfulness and wonderful agility… Blomstedt’s Academic Festival Overture is beautiful and full of tension, with the necessary verve. To the work’s advantage, he prefers youthful freshness to an academically stiff festive mood. The Gewandhaus Orchestra is at its best in both compositions. The impeccable interplay is just as noteworthy as the art of listening to each other.” ****
