Updated 31st March 2020

During the current unprecedented situation, Chandos records will remain open as usual. As many of our staff are now working remotely, we would ask you where possible to submit any queries online here rather than by telephone. CD orders are being despatched on the next working day as normal, but understandably delivery times will vary regionally, and take significantly longer than usual, depending on your location. As of 31st March, we will not be dispatching orders to countries placed ‘on suspension’ by UK’s Royal Mail. We thank you for your understanding, and wish all our customers a healthy outcome!

“An excellent performance of the main work …”

Roy Westbrook – MusicWeb-International.com – 2 April 2020
“… It is a charming disc which, thanks to Charlotte de Rothschild’s clear soprano, showcases the family’s cultured history in a wonderful light: from Mendelssohn to Sir Arthur Sullivan, who was the first Mendelssohn scholar at Leipzig. It fills one with awe to think of all these great and worthy composers stepping up the stairs into the Rothschilds’ chalets, castles and Schlösser for some pastime with good company. It must have been illustrious, informal gatherings that one would have fain been a part of. Now this CD helps at least the musical part of it to come back to life. Especially so, as Charlotte, the descendant of the Rothschilds of the 19th century, interprets so well the compositions that were once heard by her ancestors in a family atmosphere.”

“…The recordings, at the Stoller Hall, are crisp and engaging, but with power and presence to spare. These are discs to treasure, and play often.”
