Covid-19: Update: 23rd July 2020

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 delivery times will vary regionally, and may take significantly longer than usual, depending on your location.  Please note that we will not be despatching 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!

“… As one might expect, these are the sort of works that appeal to violinists, as they are all display pieces with some interesting technical challenges. Violinist Bojan Cicic is quite capable and his performance has a good sense of phrasing, something quite necessary in view of the virtuoso needs of the solo part. The Illyria Consort continuo is an equal partner, so that the entire performance is a cohesive and well-executed package. As much of the chamber works of this period, it might mainly appeal to chamber music aficionados, as there is a certain structure that make them perhaps more fun to play than to listen to all at a go. Nevertheless, this is a disc well-worth getting, both for the interesting, if sometimes quirky music, and for the fine performance.”

“… I find almost everything that Thomas Dausgaard does interesting, and this release is no exception… If Bruckner’s Symphony No 6 is Bruckner for people who do not like Bruckner, Dausgaard’s Bruckner takes that one step further … Dausgaard avoids even the slightest hints of ponderousness and portentousness, and this reading gives us all of Bruckner’s splendour and tenderness without any of the excess baggage… The Bergen Philharmonic orchestra plays very well … The splendid recorded sound adds to this issue’s attractiveness …”

Raymond Tuttle – Fanfare – September/October 2020
“… One thing this important series of recordings from John Wilson has demonstrated (this disc if the fourth) is Bennett’s consistency of voice and high musical standards, in spite of his wide-ranging style-hopping. One consistency is the transparency and polish of his orchestral writing… Michael McHale, an Irish pianist who has made several Chandos recordings accompanying clarinettist Michael Collins, gives sensitive, fluent, and sensitive reading of the solo part of the concerto… McHale is brilliantly supported by the orchestra under John Wilson, whose recordings (not just those of Richard Rodney Bennett) are adding a wealth of gripping music-making to our CD or download libraries. Recoding quality is in the best standards of the house. I thoroughly recommend this whole series, a worthy tribute to a composer who passed away in 2012. This volume is one of the best.”
