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 orchestra is exuberant. The collection might be most valuable for its relative rarities: the works by Eccles, Jeremiah Clarke and Daniel Purcell.”

Arthur Lintgen – Fanfare – September/October 2021

“… Foster is excellent and his conducting actually rivals Mehta (in one of his best recordings). That is a major accomplishment. The SACD sound meets Pentatone’s high standards; the balance between soloists and orchestra is outstanding and lifelike, much as you would hear in an opera house.”

“… charismatic conducting, expert control on Rouvali’s part, thrilling execution from the orchestra, and vibrant in-concert recorded sound.”

Huntley Dent – Fanfare – September/October 2021

“… Giorgini first made her name by winning the international Mozart competition in Salzburg five years ago, but she is clearly a very fine Lisztian, too… supple, rich-toned performances …”

Andrew Clements – The Guardian – 2 December 2021

 “… With his phenomenal technique, the Pole demonstrates on this CD that his incisive playing has something to communicate, that it acquires a rhetorical power rare for the guitar and also conveys genuine emotion. At the same time, he knows how to differentiate the individual composers according to their nationality and always find the idiomatically correct tone. The dynamics, extraordinarily reproduced on the CD, the perfect clarity and the incomparable ornamental refinement make this recital a supreme pleasure.”  *****

Remy Franck – Pizzicato.lu – 1 October 2021
“This disc will be an especial cause for celebration for all collectors and admirers of the music of Daniel Jones. It represents the completion of the cycle of Jones’ thirteen symphonies in commercially available recordings. Given the significance of symphonic form in his body work, this is a crucial addition to the wider understanding and appreciation of this too-little known composer…”

“… Support from the Lucerne players is impeccable, gently prodded and moulded by Daniel Dodds, but always instinctively responsive to every nuance of Steinbacher’s playing. You get the impression that here are musicians who not only understand each other perfectly, but relish playing in each other’s company. These first two concertos, perhaps occasionally overlooked in preference to the last three, reveal a great many charms and delights in these beautifully recorded performances, but a real highlight are the cadenzas which were written by one of the founding fathers of the Festival Strings Lucerne, Wolfgang Schneiderhan. Without imposing excessive show or virtuosity, these are the ideal vehicles to demonstrate Steinbach’s playing and in particular the sumptuous sound of that lovely Strad.”

“… Solo violin repertoire from a commanding Czech exponent…  There’s a finely judged recording in the Studio of the Academy of Performing Arts, Prague and attractive notes. There’s no Bach in this disc to add ‘gravity’, rather a succession of caprices, etudes, and variations to stimulate and enjoy.”
