RIP Sir Andrew Davis 

We are saddened by the news that Sir Andrew Davis, the renowned British conductor, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 20, 2024, surrounded by family after a battle with leukaemia. Sir Andrew recorded exclusively for Chandos Records from his first album Elgar’s Crown of India in 2009, making almost 50 recordings and gathering countless accolades and awards in the process. We will miss a wonderful musician who imparted so much to all who worked with him in such a generous, self-deprecating and humble way. RIP Andrew.

Sinfonia of London win big at BBC Music Magazine Awards 2024

Described by the magazine’s reviewer as ‘a stunning benchmark for the digital generation’, this recording also went on to win the coveted Recording of the Year.

“… An informative booklet note authored by Poster and Urisote, and Chandos’s beef but detailed sound ties the bow on this attractive package.”

“Hollywood Soundstage is the best film music recording since the RCA Classic Film Score Series conducted by Charles Gerhardt. This is primarily because of Chandos’s superstar classical conductor John Wilson and his dedication to the Golden Age of Film Music… The Chandos SACD sound is competitive with the audiophile sonics of the RCA Classic Film Score Series. Hopefully, Wilson will follow this important recording with more collection of music from the Golden Age of Film Music.”
