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.

“… For all its technical sophistication with polytempo and extended tonality, The Challenges of Kalon for string quartet and string orchestra is a highly expressive, immensely richly colored piece, heard here in a gripping interpretation. And so this monographic CD offers an interesting insight into the work of the 67-year-old British composer Richard Blackford.” *****

“… All the performers have given their full attention and care to the music of this young composer, who is counted as the only pupil of Thomas Ádes to date, creating a high-class portrait that is more than worth listening to, especially since Coll’s writing makes it easier for both performers and listeners to access…” *****

“… The whole work is not only original, but also musically exciting, eloquent and accordingly attractive. And so this varied program comes together as a monographic CD of an extremely interesting composer.” *****

“…they [The Brahms Trio] perform the two works recorded here in such an engaging manner that the musical significance of these composers becomes immediately clear. Their performance is supported by sound engineering that balances the instruments and allows the structural clarity to be heard. Perhaps the great hall of the Moscow Conservatory, which has witnessed so many great artists, was an added inspiration as a recording venue.” *****

“…. The listener is struck by the almost uninterrupted vitality and intensity, especially of the outer movements. In addition to the extensive retention of tonality, more modern elements are sometimes found interwoven in a natural way… The older recordings, some of which have been reissued, feature four orchestras and their conductors. With the exception of the orchestra from Moscow, almost all of the performers are from the composer’s regional vicinity. What they have in common is that, in addition to the liveliness of the music, they also carefully bring out the remarkably varied instrumentation and thus make the strengths of the music resound.” ****

“… Because of his personal character, his expressiveness and ability to effectively determine the build-up and release of tension, Brun’s contribution to the Winterreise discography must be considered remarkable. Karola Theill is a fine partner for him, with clear, contoured, tense accompaniment that is always rhetorical. The sound recording is superbly balanced and of optimal spaciousness for such a project.” ****
