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.

“… This is a welcome celebration of Norgard’s chamber music. Norgard lovers will enjoy this, and newcomers to his music will find this a great place to start. Performers and sound are satisfying.”

“Recordings from this source are always interesting, and this one is no exception. Lan Shui’s interpretations tend to be just a little different, giving the listener something to think about, while remaining mainstream. All that applies to this beautifully played and well recorded disc…”

Roger Hecht – American Record Guide – September/October 2021

“… his [Wilson] primary agenda is to showcase the dazzling brilliance of his hand-picked ensemble. The piece that benefits most is Arthur Bliss’s Music for Strings (1935), a work of symphonic proportions on three movements. Of all these composers, Bliss writes the thickest string textures. As a result, his music can become weighed down in a heavy-handed or lethargic reading. Wilson’s separates the important lines, clarifies textures, and sharply points rhythmic motifs… Wilson’s fresh, bracing performance in up-to-date sound is most welcome.”

“…This album is cleverly and usefully planned, the performances are excellent, and the engineering is resonant, warm, full, and balanced for every instrument. Not only did I enjoy it, but I learned something too.”

Gil French – Fanfare – September/October 2021

“… I enjoyed every work in this fine collection and found the playing of all involved to be superlative. Kudos are due to the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Ben Palmer’s direction and to the soloists. I want to especially commend clarinettist Peter Cigleris for his spearheading this project. The sound is excellent, though the clarinet is a bit forward in the mix. Heartily recommended.”
