Update: 4th Jan 2022

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.

“… Given the quality of the cantatas and the performances as well as the fact that all four cantatas appear on disc for the first time, this disc is an important contribution to the growing discography of Graupner's oeuvre.”

“… a highly entertaining recital and I have listened to it again and again, enjoying it immensely. The sound is more than acceptable in all respects and the players all present this music with aplomb. Harmonically there is gentle spice amongst the rich romantic writing and hopefully this will be a step towards exploring the rest of this fine Polish composer's rich output.”

“An entrancing work that casts an irresistible spell.”

“… It is, perhaps, inevitable that an ongoing and comprehensive survey such as this will include music that is less than consistently inspired – or, to be frank, even inspired at all. Nevertheless, this Naxos series is proving a very worthwhile exercise as it begins to fill the many gaps in Auber’s discography. The ready availability of music from such scores as Zanetta and Zerline now begins to allow us to gain a fuller appreciation of the composer and his music. The performances here are, moreover, entirely idiomatic. The Ostrava-based Janácek Philharmonic Orchestra, newly co-opted to the project, does sterling service throughout as they tackle no doubt hitherto unfamiliar scores. Meanwhile, Dario Salvi’s skilled direction and the expertise of Naxos’s engineering team – both consistent features of the series - ensure that plenty of felicitous detail is uncovered and recorded. I have no hesitation at all in warmly welcoming this new release to the catalogue.”

“… All the works seem to be premiere recordings, so there is nothing to compare, but one can conclude that cellist Nicholas Trygstad and pianist David Jones are sympathetic to Stevens’s complex, technically demanding and often wide-ranging music. The recital is helped by a vibrant and clear recording… Robin Stevens’s style is characterised by “Beethovenian motivic development; rhapsodic, modal lyricism; bold, dramatic gestures; tangy harmonies; intricate counterpoint; and unashamedly direct, open-hearted expression”. It is an absorbing and satisfying combination.”

“Another splendid release by the Sixteen… Particularly notable are Chilcott’s sumptuous setting of the Advent O Antiphons, and the shimmering, transcendent performance of Jan Sandstrom’s setting of ‘Lo, How a Rose e’er Blooming’. They alone are worth the price of the CD. This is singing of a glorious perfection and a must for your Christmas collection…”

“… The performances are impeccable and, given that the make-up of the choir is different every year, the subtle changes in the choral sound, particularly of the boys, makes for fascinating listening. Well worth adding to your “seasonal” recordings…”
