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.

"... Haydn's music is inventive and idiomatic, well crafted and finished.... The performances here are all very fine. The girls of the St Albans Choir sing with good ensemble and intonation. They are matched by three soloists who are barely out of school, so the youthful sound is maintained. The Lawes Baroque Players, a period group ... Under conductor Tom Winpenny this gives a sense of what a performance might have sounded like in outpost like Salzburg..."

"... Minder enlivens this music with an assured technique, rich tone, and a clear connection to the music and its many moods. The recording quality is excellent, with the guitar realistically balanced with the other instruments. Definitely worth hearing!"

"... Amanda Forsythe has a gorgeous voice, which breathes life into Metastasio's words with Graun's music, filled with dramatic leaps and florid melismas. The final arias of O Dio, Fileno is particularly striking for its rapid scales and aggressive rhythms ... It is an excellent recording."

Peter Loewen – American Record Guide – March/April 2021
"... he is an expert in musical expression and demonstrates it here without personally raising a finger or baton. His music is delicate and demanding by turns, not particularly tonal but not painful to hear. Both concertos are substantial. The Cell Concerto is scored for strings and percussion, giving it an easy-listening glow; and the Double-bsss Concerto employs a fuller orchestra but is still light in texture, giving the soloist a chance to be happy on his own... The soloists are excellently balanced with the orchestra, which is itself beautiful and polished in sound, as one might expect from this well-known group ... conducted with care and clarity by Siffert... This is a recording to be seriously considered."
