Peter Loewen – American Record Guide – March/April 2021
“… At his [Siem] best – which is most of the time – Siem is amazing: his intonation (especially) is impeccable, his bowing is not far behind.

"...They [Lodge continuo section] change the instrumentation for the different pieces, so there is a pleasant variety of sounds. The effects are often wonderful, like the opening Adagio of Corelli's Op. 5:3 Violin Sonata, which  evokes a warm spring breeze blowing in the window. Lodge and her group have an excellent feel for textures abetted by the very full, clear recorded sound ..."

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.
