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!

“… Richardson’s Puccini is unshowy, too, with a touching farewell to Rodolfo from Mimi and a defiant Tosca at the end of ‘Visse d’art’. She evidently hears these women in their music… her ‘Piangete voi?... Al dolce guidami’ from Anna Bolena is as good as this dependable artist gets, discreetly decorated at the start of the aria as she wraps her voice around one of Donizetti’s most seductive melodies. The soft singing at the end has real class…”

“… Michelle Angelini is magnificent as the villain, everything that you hope for in a Rossini tenor – fleet of voice in his runs and trills and with gravity-defying head notes. Sara Blanch’s Matilde matches him note for note. Their Act I duet ‘Ch’io fugga ha già timore…’ is a thrilling lesson in Rossini singing. There’s good work from the rest of the cast, notably the contralto Victoria Yarovaya as Eduardo … Equally pleasing is the Passionart Orchestra conducted y José Miguel Pérez-Sierra. All scrupulously Rossinian including the celebrated horn solo at the beginning of Act II.”

“… Boismortier’s score is often delectable and both stylishly and entrancingly performed here by the rich and characterful Hungarian period-instrument orchestra and the healthy-sounding choir, with international principals among whom Katherine Watson’s Zéphire and Judith van Wanrij’s Daphné in particular stand out … Conductor György Vashegyi maintains lively tempos. The sound possesses a wide range and a striking sense of perspective.”
