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!

Album of the Week
“… In the Lehar piece and Korngold’s Op 4, Songs of Farewell, Skelton refines his Wagnerian instrument to a ravishing head voice thread. There are plusher-toned accounts of Verklärte Nacht, but few of the orchestral version that are delivered with such a refined ear for its translucent textures and fevered chromatic ecstasy.”

“These are substantial works, in which plaintive solemnity alternates with emphatic, syncopated dances, all heavily imbued with Indian modal, melodic and rhythmic sequences. I found this engrossing mix of European and Asian traditions richly rewarding and hope that this superb CD will inspire more recordings of Kaufmann’s music. I’d love to hear them.”

“The ARC Ensemble have prepared this unfamiliar repertoire with care and a feeling for its beauties. I enjoyed Erika Raum’s sweet tone in the brief Second Violin Sonata and her quicksilver repartee with pianist Kevin Ahfat in Kaufmann’s sudden turns of thought … Chandos and the ARC Ensemble would do everyone a favour by producing a second volume.”

“… Christopher’s and The Sixteen’s long –running association with MacMillan guarantee that these performances leave no potential unrealised. The Britten Sinfonia’s contribution is on the same level, and all in all, I cannot imagine a better performance of either one of these works…”

“… Christopher Eschenbach is a vital partner in the Wanderer, offering detailed but never stuffy support (rarely has Liszt’s expansion of Schubert’s original sounded as brilliantly orchestrated) and an excellent sense of give-and-take. Jens F. Laurson’s notes are illuminating, and Capriccio’s sound is first-rate as well. Warmly welcomed.”

"... Hannu Lintu and the Finnish Radio Orchestra seem deeply committed to the music, playing with abandon as well as technical security. This is an easy recommendation to anyone interested in the music being composed today. A very thorough and helpful set of program notes and clear but never clinical recorded sound round out the production,"
