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.

"... Isserlis is his usual beautifully languid self, and Shih a precise, fiery complement, their antiphonal phrases sparkling with joyous ease. The BIS recording, as usual, is magnificent: notes and intonations float in a vast spectrum of presence so rich it’s almost visible." ****½

“… joy comes through clearly in their [Arcadia Quartet] performance; their enthusiasm for this music is clear to hear in their strongly articulated, nuanced and inspired playing. Their performance explores the wide-ranging dynamics of Weinberg’s music while displaying their admiration for it. If they are new to Weinberg’s music, it does not show in their detailed and well measured performance which gives the listener great hope for the coming volumes in the series. If you do not know Weinberg, this recording is a good place to start, and with a performance like this by the Arcadia Quartet you cannot go wrong.”

“… The singers are all perfectly equipped to realise Kuhnau's intentions. Their stylish singing and the attention they give to the text are enjoyable, and there is some excellent playing from the members of the camerata lipsiensis. In short, this disc is of major importance, for historical and musical reasons.”
