“…This is really terrific music, folks! Not only am I mightily impressed with these piano quartets, I am thrilled that they are given such excellent performances by the Mariani piano Quartet. I can find nothing to be critical of in this fine release. The recorded sound, captured during sessions in June 2016, is also everything one could ask for – full-bodied, dynamic, and tonally natural, with an ideal balance of direct and hall sound. Even the booklet notes are lucid and informative … Having listened to a lot of more challenging music recently, this was a much-needed ear cleanser and instantly becomes a Want List candidate for me.”

“… The orchestra has a clear, compact sound that is balanced perfectly, with the use of a double bass adding just the right amount of heft to the low end. Moreover, they play with a precision that would make Stamitz jealous; this is especially noticeable in section unison playing. It is also worth mentioning that the recorded sound is stunning, an ideal balance of clarity and warmth. These are shimmering, glossy performances of music that sounds like it is as much fun to play as it is to hear. What a wonderful thing it would be if this were the beginning of a complete cycle of Locatelli’s L’arte del violono from Gringolts and the Finnish Baroque Orchestra on BIS.”

“…Given the superlative performances and the equally fine sonics that BIS provides, this CD is a must-own for every – and anyone fond of profound tonal music, and gets my highest recommendation as music truly worth hearing. Certainly a Want List contender …”

David DeBoor Canfield – Fanfare – September/October 2021
“… I enjoyed everything about this CD: the ever interesting and evocative music, the Delangles’ stellar performances that the composer must surely consider definitive, the well-recorded sonics that BIS offers, and even the slightly goofy but endearing cover photo of the three artists involved. The disc is simply a must-own for anyone interested in the music era, and not just for saxophone or piano enthusiasts – although they, too, will find it indispensable.”

“… The playing on this release is very good, displaying spirit, commitment, and convincing pacing and shaping… The sound of the recording is vivid, spacious, and realistic, with very good definition of the instruments. Once again the resurrection of forgotten works from the archives by dedicated musicians and an enterprising label turns out to be a worthwhile project. I derived considerable enjoyment from the music on this release, and I recommend it to other chamber music enthusiasts.”

“… The standard of execution in these diverse works is very professional and engaged. The recorded sound is uniformly good from the various engineers working at Ball State University. This release can be warmly recommended to listeners with Modernist tastes and a willingness to venture fairly far from tonality.”

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.
