Covid-19: Update: 17th Feb 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. Following Brexit EU customers should view this page regarding taxation. We thank you for your understanding.

“… the Dorics put a lot of emphasis on Mozart’s elegant and refined writing. For all its liveliness the playing, which can be quite forceful in its accents and sometimes quite urgent, never conveys a sense of haste or hurry, but is generally inspiring for its beauty, which seems to glow from within, and for the balance and clarity of the art of phrasing, sound quality and expression.” ****

“…. Edward Garner also conducts this music very excitingly, with a fine sense of sound and a feeling for drama. In Lise Davidsen he has an excellent Mélisande to hand. Of Tapiola he delivers a rather realistic interpretation … All the more pleasing is that the rarely performed Rakastava and Varsang are very confidently shaped by Gardner and played with much intensity by the orchestra.” ****

“This second set of orchestral works by Czech-born Paul Wranitzky … In the unpublished D minor symphony Der Sturm, a quiet, charming Adagio precedes the Allegro con fuoco, in which the storm unleashes its musical forces. The other two symphonies are also original and nice to listen to. The orchestra, as on the 1st CD, plays freshly and spiritedly, with a charming lightness.”  ****

“… Rosemary Tuck’s playing is virtuosic but maintains the music’s charm with clever agogics and fine dynamics. This results in an 80-minute program, which – almost unbelievably – contains world premiere recordings, except for the … Monastery piece.” ****

“… The Quintet for guitar and string quartet, a rare combination, has three fast, good-humored movements with interesting sound effects, as well as a particularly beautiful Andante mesto with a melancholy mood. The performance is lovely and inspired. With very different atmospheric the Eclogues lead to the Fantasia for guitar and piano, composed for Segovia and his wife Paquita Madriguera. Like the Sonatina for flute and guitar, it is a work rich in contrasts, heard in fine interpretations.” ****

“…, the interpretations of Romanian pianist Victor Nicoara are … spontaneous and sensitive, with a proper blend of clarity, warmth, and differentiation of moods, between thoughtfully lyrical and intensely urgent. This range is also found in the Sonatina by the pianist himself, which concludes the program like a résumé. The sound recording is excellent.” ****

“…Evelyn Glennie and the Albany Symphony provide an evocative interpretation [Strike Zones]… Still / Rapids has two movements, the first of which testifies to the glittering calm of water, while the second describes the power of water in rapids. A great piece, excellently interpreted and recorded! The solo piece Ivory and Ebony … is a part quietly meditative, part virtuosic work, finely nuanced by Blair MacMillen. ****
