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.

“… This disc is a delight from beginning to end.”
“… This disc is a delight from beginning to end.”
Stephen Wright – American Record Guide – January/February 2023
“… The soloists and orchestra give exceptional performances. Andris Poga’s readings do justice to these fine works. The releases in this series have been some of the most rewarding to come my way in the last year or so; this one is no exception. Listeners would do well to take note of this brilliant and important symphonist.”

“… Mesaglio plays with great freedom and fantasy yet locically joins the varied sections of every movement into a satisfying whole. His fleet passagework is pristine and pearly. He plays a perfectly regulated and tuned Fazioli 278”

“… All the vocal works are sung by the lyric soprano… It is indeed a lovely voice, technically secure, and she sings with a wide range of color and expression… She is a delight to hear. The Berlin Academy under concertmaster Forck plays very well … Sonics are first rate…”

“… The performance boasts handsome singing, superb diction, and jaunty phrasing from all quarters. The solo voices have the sweetness and the guts to bring Haydn’s melodies to life. I especially like mezzo Catherine Wyn-Rogers, whose voice is strong but not the least bit heavy. Most important of all is the vivid manner where the liturgy is allowed to tell its own story…”

“… Handel’s genius for characterization is heard all through this long opus. Melissa, in particular, is no generic, jealous woman, but one whose tormented state of mind is explored by the composer with empathy and specific colors. The singers here are all very good.. Christian Curnyn leads a well-played and sung performance … The sound is excellent…”
