Covid-19: Update: 17th Feb 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. Following Brexit EU customers should view this page regarding taxation. We thank you for your understanding.

“… It quickly becomes clear that Leong, despite his young age, has absorbed and grasped this music very profoundly. His playing is so technically polished and so richly facetted and nuanced that one might wonder why others have difficulty with these works. In spite of his detailed interpretation, he manages without any problems to keep the overview and to span the arc of the interpretation. At the same time, his playing is such that he imparts his own approach to the works, which makes it possible to combine the pieces, which are quite different from one another, namely as caricatures or praise for six of Ysaÿe’s violin-playing contemporaries, into a unified listening impression…” *****

“… The instrument’s sound is fantastic, and Dego has really made it her own. The pieces Francesco Dego plays are partly solo, partly with piano accompaniment. She manages to dazzle the listener with a virtuosity that is completely free of any technical constraints. There is much expressivity in her rich, full-blooded and yet very refined playing …” *****

“… The two male soloists, both still young artists, are the tenor Stuart Jackson as the Evangelist and the baritone Konstantin Krimmel as Jesus. Many pleasing points come together here, so that both present their roles convincingly both vocally and interpretatively. Both already winners of competitions, they are on their way and, as far as the baritone is concerned, have already attracted positive attention. The soloists in and out of the choir in their smaller passages are in no way inferior to the big names. As already mentioned, they offer clear and understandable pronunciation, both individually and as a group, although they are not native speakers. But even their roles are fully and lovingly created and not dismissed as supporting roles…” *****

“… Ultimately, then, this last movement proves a lackluster capstone to an otherwise largely agreeable Beethoven Nine. Reference Recording’s sonics are excellent as ever and Honeck provides an explication of his views on the piece for the liner notes. They’re intriguing to consider – even if the musical results don’t always bear him out.”
