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.

“…In the title role, Leonardo Capalbo offers charm, delicacy and a touch of melancholy. Jane Archibald makes an amiable Cunegonde… Anne Sofie von Otter has considerable fun with the Old Lady. Secondary roles are well delivered… The LSO is on resilient form …”

George Hall – BBC Music magazine – Christmas 2021

“…The variety of styles presented in this short, single-act opera is mind-boggling – croquet rules are explained through Czerny’s technical piano studies, the Jabberwocky poem appears as Russian hymn, a French cabaret act and German marching song, and a pompous Humpty Dumpty samples to the tune from Ode to Joy. In another setting, under another composer, all this might seem bizarre, but such musical references are so beautifully integrated they enhance the referential nature of Carroll’s original narrative arc.”

“In this outstanding performance of Brahms’s Fourth Symphony, Manfred Honek draws a wonderfully rich, almost Central European String sound from the Pittsburgh Symphony, matched by equally mellifluous and wonderfully blended colours from the woodwind and horns…”

“… Susanna Mälkki and her Helsinki Philharmonic offer performances that are at once satisfying, dazzling and individual. There’s a poise, indeed an elegance, to the basic good posture of these interpretations, held on a taut reign, with shifts of energy splendidly controlled and unshakable technical excellence worn nonchalantly …”
