Szymanowski: Symphonies Nos 1 and 3 etc.
CHAN 3180

CHSA 5123
Szymanowski: Stabat Mater/Harnasie
CHAN 10764
Britten: Concertos

 “… The reason this recording of Britten’s early concertos is so good lies in the conducting of Edward Gardner. He makes such sense of the music ; on a moment-to-moment basis he understands the point of what Britten wrote, and conveys it to his sharply responsive orchestra … Adding to the disc’s quality is the sound: exceptionally clean and natural. This is one of the most distinguished releases yet in Britten’s centenary year.”

Phillip Scott – Fanfare – November/December 2013


“…This is definitely a keeper.”


Ronald E Grames – Fanfare – November/December 2013

Lutoslawski: Vocal Works

"...The soloists on this album, especially Lucy Crowe, who seems born to sing the music, are all wonderful, and Edward Gardner elevates the performance tradition of Lutoslawski’s music to a new level. Superb music, superbly performed and recorded makes a most desirable release."

Steven Ritter - AudiophileAudition.com - 28 September 2012

CHAN 10671

   ***** Exceptional

Giuseppe Rossi – Musica magazine (Italy) – September 2011

CHAN 10658
Britten: Works for Orchestra

“... The fine playing of Watkins, the sensitive singing of Murray in the lute song from Glorianna, and the sensitive and exciting playing of Gardner and the BBC Philharmonic contribute much ... as does Chandos’s beautifully balanced and rich-sounding recording ... the imaginative programming here matches the unusually fine production in all aspects.”

D Moore – American Record Guide – July/August 2011


CHSA 5082
Lutoslawski: Orchestral Works, Volume I
CHAN 10590
Susan Gritton - Sings Britten/ Finzi/Delius

“…These performances make strong cases for all these works and also provide a fine platform for the many facets of Susan Gritton’s voice.”

Richard Nicholson

CHAN 3167
Great Operatic Arias, Vol. 22 - Gerald Finley

“…It would be hard to imagine a more attractive bass-baritone voice than Finley’s, and his vocal gifts combined with his musical and dramatic acumen make these performances a delight.” “…The London Philharmonic Orchestra plays with precision under conductor Edward Gardner, and the Geoffrey Mitchell Choir provides excellent support, particularly in the Meistersingers excerpt. Chandos’s recording captures a myriad of subtle details found in the colourful orchestral textures…”
“…Finley’s accomplishment with this album is impressive…”

Derek Greten-Harrison
