Covid-19: Update: 12th Jan 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. We thank you for your understanding, and wish all our customers a healthy outcome!

“… With Ilic’s romantic gesture and his good dose of mischievousness, the 57 variations come together under the compelling authority of a strong personality to form a masterful whole. It is precisely through the authority of the interpreter that the Opus 57 becomes undeniably magnificent and exciting from the first to the last note.” *****

“… These four works are given convincing and committed performances which do justice to this underrated composer and afford the listener a wonderful opportunity to hear the colour and style of her orchestral music. The sound is very good and the booklet notes include a detailed introduction by Kate Romano and incisive program notes by LeFanu herself on each of the four pieces recorded here. I hope that this is just the first of a series of discs dedicated to exploring her music.”

“… Çakmur provides thoughtful and extensive notes on each piece, as well as his reasoning behind his ordering of the segments in the Schwanengesang. He is clearly a cerebral pianist in the best sense of the word. This is a young man to watch. The recording quality is up to BIS’ usual high standards, with excellent dynamic range and beautiful clarity and immediacy.”

“… the performance of the orchestra sounds fully engaged, and the recording quality is excellently judged. This will appeal to the curious and – in the case of the nocturne – to others also.”

“This is a seriously impressive disc… The performances of each of the solo performers and ensembles on this disc suggest a profound sense of commitment to this composer, whilst NMC’s sound is outstanding – since hearing the disc I have acquired the Hi-Res files which offer one of the most compelling electro-acoustic experiences I have ever had the pleasure to hear. Christopher Fox’s notes are characteristically helpful and devoid of empty flattery. I greatly look forward to hearing much more of Linda Buckley’s music in the future…”
