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.

“… consistently rich and beautifully balanced sound quality. In sum, a stand-out and compelling set well worthy of investigation.”

“… The performances of these four works for clarinet and orchestra are ideal. Clearly, the soloists Peter Cigleris and Deian Rowlands (Dolmetsch) have taken ownership of these concertos … and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Ben Palmer have entered into the spirit of this music. The recording is great and the liner notes, presumably by Cigleris, are helpful… This is an excellent CD. How often do reviewers conclude by expressing the wish that the music were more widely known? I would extend that to include the achievements of all the composers represented here. Finally, I hope that clarinettist Peter Cigleris keeps up the good work and “rediscovers” many more forgotten scores.”

“… The Rorem is, I think, the finest work here – and I suspect that it will be the most enduring- but the other pieces have their rewards; I find the mixture of idioms in Alrich’s Marimba Concerto especially attractive.”

“… This CD is far from ‘easy listening’, but it is immensely rewarding. So well designed too, in its contributions by first a youth choir, then an adult professional choir, both of extremely high standard, and meeting in the middle for Sandström’s ‘yoik’ Biegga Luohte. A disc to cherish and relish for all enthusiasts of choral music; Scandinavian music too, and there’s not a note of Grieg, Sibelius or Nielsen in sight!”

“… The disc is well filled and we have the benefit of the composer’s son conducting. A further strength, in the case of the Concerto, is the playing of another member of the next generation of the Kuusisto family…”

“… This is a richly enjoyable performance of Rachmaninoff’s great symphony. Simon Rattle is a highly persuasive advocate for the score while the playing of the orchestra is fully worthy of the LSO’s distinguished tradition with this work.”

“… Barthold Kuijken has always been a master of refinement and subtlety, and one can leave it to him to bring this programme to life in a way which does full justice to its character. Immanuel Davis is his congenial partner, and they receive appropriate support from Arnie Tanimoto and Donald Livingston. This is music for a quiet afternoon or evening and needs to be savoured in full concentration. The listener will be richly rewarded.”
