“Atanas Ourkouzounov’s guitar writing is the most interesting I’ve ever heard, and this program serves up large helpings of it… Just as impressive as the writing is the performing guitarist Kostas Tosidis is eye-wideningly capable here, playing these demanding, unrelenting passages with ease, flexibility, and astonishing perfection. The talent here is maddening. You won’t be disappointed if you purchase this, but whether your mind can keep up with this music is another question altogether."

“… This album has a greater significance than just a well-written piece performed beautifully … In these eight movements, Herskedal manages to transport the audience into a place and an intellectual space that gets us closer to world peace and cross-cultural understanding. I think this album is going to mean a great deal and do a great deal of good to many people.”

"Howard kempton's music has a beguiling simplicity that masks its subtle brilliance just beneath the surface. His compositional choices are so free from ego that the music flows with a natural spontaneity..."

"... most of these pieces are well written - a credit to Stevens's versatility... I particularly liked the music with piano as these pieces showed off his adventurous harmony. These miniatures are bursting with ideas... In all, an engaging, if scattered album."

Covid-19: Update: 23rd July 2020

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 delivery times will vary regionally, and may take significantly longer than usual, depending on your location.  Please note that we will not be despatching orders to countries placed ‘on suspension’ by UK’s Royal Mail. We thank you for your understanding, and wish all our customers a healthy outcome!
