Update: 4th Jan 2022

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.

“… The duo Collins/Hough did an excellent job with the two clarinet sonatas in the spirit of their "ancestors" Mühlfeld/Brahms. Michael Collins with beguilingly beautiful intonation and subtle dynamic gradation in a soulful musical dialogue with Stephen Hough, who acts as an equal piano partner.”

“… This disc encapsulates the finest of French violin writing around the turn of the 20th century, in very good if unemotional performances, with excellent sound.”

“Marin Alsop proves herself to be a top-flight interpreter of Hindemith’s music, showing Sancta Susanna to be a masterpiece.”

“… Through this disc we become acquainted with a lesser-known side of Telemann's oeuvre. It completes our picture of the composer, and also adds something to our knowledge of the time. It is notable that here, in music of relatively little weight, Telemann does not betray his qualities as a creative composer. He took his task of writing music for a special occasion seriously. Especially the serenata is a good example of his skills in the musical illustration of a text. In Ametas's rage aria opera is not far away. The performances are quite good. Julia Kircher and Georg Poplutz are a good match in the serenata, in which the interaction between the two is just as it should be. Poplutz, whom we know mainly as a performer of sacred music, does well in the solo cantata, and in the serenata he succesfully demonstrates his less serious side. Julia Fischer seems to have considerable talent in the dramatic department as well, and is entirely convincing in the probably tongue-in-cheek cantata… The playing of La Stagione Frankfurt is as good as we have come to expect. This is a nice disc, which any Telemann lover may wish to add to his collection.”
