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.

“… This fine SACD has atmospheric surround sound, the voice realistically balanced with the orchestra… A fine collection from a Norwegian soprano very well worth hearing.”

“… If you are looking for a really good disc for the Christmas season, this is one you should investigate.”

“… This is a superbly recorded and artistically well conceived album which is proven to be a voyage of discovery in a side of Busoni that I hadn’t previously experienced.”

“… In terms of the quality of performance and music I believe the release is fully justified. But even more significantly, this release documents the success of the King’s musicians in overcoming the challenges of Covid-19 to ensure that the tradition of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was maintained.”

“… I found all three of these very different works most enjoyable; they are each sufficiently colourful and invigorating to merit further reacquaintance. As the Naxos Brazilian series gathers momentum, I certainly hope to encounter further examples of this composer’s sizeable orchestral output.”

“… The Schnittke is essential, and the Prokofiev is another fine installment of Welser-Möst's exploration of Prokofiev…. this is a commandingly important release.”

“… This album has value for both the curious listener and veteran collector. Approach it either as a doorway to lesser-known corners of the Scandinavian repertoire or as a way to complement your existing collection of this music. It need not replace your preferred alternatives but do not miss the chance to hear Pylkkänen’s worthy music and enjoy a successful concept well executed.”

“… The orchestra is excellent. The cast is good, and the soprano voices of Constance and Laurette are well matched in their duet Ah, do cease to feel such sorrow. The male roles are also fine… Certainly enjoyable in its own right, Beck’s L’isle déserte will be of interest to music historians: the work of a composer active in France who went against national trends by adapting an Italian libretto…Much more than just a historical rarity.”
