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.

“… Very highly recommended.”
“… Very highly recommended.”
Andrew Niell – Elgar Society Journal Vol. 23 No. 1 – January 2023

“… This [recording] one has four singers, all of them outstanding… I’ve never heard more sublime readings of ‘Extase’ and ‘Elegie’ than hers [Connolly]. Nicky Spence is, as always astoundingly good. He brings his deeply attentive soft singing to ‘Serenade’ and ‘Serenade Florentine’. His ethereal reading of ‘Soupir’ … is exquisite… Everything about this album is appealing …”

“… The care, sensitivity, and details two world-class pianists, who have been playing together since the 1980s, give to everything here is remarkable. Just about everyone enjoys Debussy, and here are superb performances of a wide range of his music… this is a highly recommended addition to your library.”

“… they [Busch’s songs] are worth hearing and stand up favourably to songs of this era … The recording quality is very good, including good balance between voices and piano.”

Robert A Moore – American Record Guide – January/February 2023

“… All of this music is easy to listen to. The Style is reminiscent of earlier times, from Baroque to romantic. Burge likes to repeat musical phrases and vary them gradually, and there are often soloists. The orchestra is excellent, as is the conductor. I hope to hear them again soon!”
