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.

“… They [Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective] all share an interest in unknown and innovative repertoire, and their artistic expertise leads to exemplary results here. In terms of sophistication, listening to one another, musical expression, you can hardly wish for better recordings, and the production is also extraordinary in terms of recording technology…”

Carsten Durer - Piano News - July/August 2021
"... The Mozartists play gloriously under the dynamic leadership of conductor and artistic director, Ian Page. The constant stream of melody allied to the beauty of the soloists' voices give much pleasure. This is one of the outstanding works by an English composer of the period and it serves Arne's cause well. Everyone can take a well-deserved bow and the whole enterprise deserves the highest raise." *****

"... it is the solo piano music itself which forms the fully musical attraction of this double-album. There is no doubt that this is music of consistently fine quality - wide-ranging in impetus and consequent expressive achievements. McLeod could not have done better in finding the admirable Murray McLachlan as his ideal interpreter. In many ways, this two-disc set has been something of a revelation - as I hope it will prove to a wide audience." *****

"... This Signum Classics release underlines the variety and reach of Roxanna Panufnik's chamber and instrumental output. The seven substantial and rewarding pieces on the disc are all heard to advantage in refined, incisive accounts." *****

"An excellent ensemble ... create a fabulous detailed sound which is perfect for Debussy... This is a CD which brings out a different Debussy, played with insight and sense of perspective and because of that it is much recommended." *****
