Paul Westcott

We are saddened to announce the death of Paul Westcott. He died of cancer on Christmas day, one day before his 53rd birthday.
Paul was Press Officer at Chandos Records for 25 years and was instrumental in its success.
He was much loved in the industry and by all at Chandos right up to this day and will be much remembered for his huge knowledge of music, optimism, dedication and love for the industry and those that worked within it. RIP Paul. We miss you.
Ralph Couzens, MD Chandos Records.

 

We are delighted - and extremely proud - to have been awarded Gramophone's coveted 'label of the year'. Editor Martin Cullingford writes "A commitment to the finest artists and the highest sound quality, the Colchester-based company is a shining beacon for the art of recording".

 

We are saddened to hear that the conductor Bramwell Tovey has passed away. Known for his work with Brass Bands & orchestras, he will be greatly missed.

Presto Recording of the Year Finalist 2022

“... their artistic weight, and the quality and integrity she brings to her orchestral music, provide ample reason to challenge her established image. The violin concerto Étude recalls an almost Ligeti-like sound world, and Pade’s works are characterised by a playful tone and a clear sense of humour.”

“Okku Kamu and his Danish forces have the measure of this work... The recording itself is first-rate with a wide dynamic range. The Overture receives a powerful performance with a most vivid storm—more so than other versions I have heard. The soloists are all excellent and project the text well.”

“... Lukasz Borowicz is a leading figure in the reclamation of Polish twentieth-century music and...is meticulous about editions and source material. He directs the WDR Sinfonieorchester with adamantine control but allows the more malleable elements of the music to relax.”

“This fine release is the second volume in an ongoing cycle devoted to Santoro’s symphonic music. The excellent, committed performances are well recorded in fine sound... The programme unquestionably
reveals his real stature as a symphonist.”
