Covid-19: Update: 27th Aug 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.

“… these are powerful and illuminating performances, confirming Wigglesworth as one of the finest Shostakovich interpreters of our time.”

“… Flawlessly performed, this CD offers a compelling juxtaposition of old and new music. This is Cappella Amsterdam’s first album for Pentatone and they’ve been rewarded with exemplary recorded sound which marries the clarity that’s essential for music like this with just the right degree of pleasing resonance. Excellent documentation completes the attractions of this distinguished release.”

“… The performances under the violinist-turned-conductor Thomas Zehetmair seem thoroughly accomplished and idiomatic, and the recording is up to the high standards we expect from BIS. This is a SACD but I was listening in ordinary two-channel stereo. The booklet note is helpful and the whole disc makes for attractive if not wholly satisfying listening.”
