Covid-19: Update: 27th Aug 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. We thank you for your understanding.

“… The Moscow Symphony Orchestra, under Dmitry Yablonsky’s direction, presents an opulent, deeply romantic interpretation.” ****

“Florian Uhlig has taken a lot of time for his complete recording of Robert Schumann’s piano works. The 15th album has now been released. As on the previous CDs, Uhlig works thematically. The focus, as on CD No. 12, is on early works by Schumann in second, revised versions. Uhlig playing is, as always, technically excellent, and the pianist gets by without showmanship or idiosyncrasy. He remains connected to Schumann’s music and keeps himself rather in the background as an interpreter, impressing with perfect balance, intelligent phrasing and a very natural breath.” ****

“The performance shows generally high competence and comfort, no surprise given that the work is a longtime staple in Croatia: indeed, it is the single most-performed opera in the entire repertory of the Croatian National Theater.”

“Here is an outstanding recording from the Escher String Quartet of music by two stylistically divergent 20th-century American composers, Samuel Barber and Charles Ives.”

“… At less than an hour, the album is short, but musically one is not short-changed. Shibe writes the notes himself, eloquently explain the musical choices. The quality of the recording and the communicativeness of the performances are shining through, making this remarkable release a real testament to Shibe’s artistry.”

“… For Joan Tower fans, this disc is a must; for the Tower-curious, it offers an excellent introduction to the composer’s wider work, all of it compellingly played.”
