Shostakovich: Cello Concertos
CHAN 10690
Bartok: Violin Concertos Nos 1 & 2/Viola Concerto

“The rapport between the BBC  Philharmonic and its conductor laureate Gianandrea Noseda is amply illustrated, with James Ehnes a technically flawless soloist (both as violinist and violist)...”

The Sunday Telegraph – 11 December 2011

Ian Lace - Musicweb-international.com - September 2011

CHAN 10610
Bartok: Piano Concertos Nos 1, 2 & 3

“...the Chandos release keeps me riveted as I listen: the music unfolds gracefully and coherently, and the sparkling sonics allow me to savor Bartok’s orchestration in wonderful detail.”

Haskins – American Record Guide – July/August 2011

CHAN 10605
Casella: Symphony No. 2/ Scarlattiana

“Recorded sound for both works is very full and captures all the graduations of the orchestral timbre …”

Musical Opinion - January/February 2011

CHAN 10589
Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2/ The Rock

“Gianandrea Noseda’s Rachmaninov series, which so far includes the First Symphony and operas ‘Francesca da Rimini and The Miserly Knight, continues with a sumptuous account of the composer’s longest and most accomplished symphony. The beauty of Rachmaninov’s orchestration is emphasised with playing that is both rich and detailed, the clarinet solo in the Adagio not only beguilingly played but also supported by a luminous and seductive web of sound.”

Christian Hoskins


CHAN 10561
Dallapiccola: Orchestral Works, Volume 2

“…A huge range of mood  and dynamics – whether mysterious, yearning, vast, dramatic, or miniscule – are superbly conveyed in Gianandrea Noseda’s performance, in which ‘…there is no end to out wonderment, yet from the very beginning we feel at home’.

Tim Mottershead

Tempo Magazine - October 2010

CHAN 10518
Smetana: Orchestral Works, Vol.2 - Bartered bride / The Two Widows etc.

Even the most familiar pages of the Bartered Bride come up as fresh as paint, the BBC Philharmonic’s immaculate virtuosity as musicianly and refined as it is sparkling. However rapid and propulsive the tempo, noting is pushed or over-driven. The Polka’s grandiose opening leads to music of a courtly charm, enough to set even the least susceptible heads nodding and feet tapping. The Furiant’s catchy cross-rhythms lead to suavely romantic melody and in the Overture to The Secret there is a typical Smetana progression from sobriety to lightness and exultance… Everything is permeated with a sense of Czech pride and ideals, a mood memorably captured by Noseda. Chandos’ sound is exceptional and there are outstanding accompanying notes by Jan Smaczny.
Gramophone Editor's Choice

CHAN 10524
Liszt: Symphonic Poems, Volume 5

“This is a worthy conclusion to an unquestionably significant and timely project. Beyond its appeal to Lisztians and students of Romanticism, Volume 5 of the Symphonic Poems will afford tremendous pleasure to lovers of fine orchestral playing. Most highly recommended."

Patrick Rucker


International Record Review - July/August 2009

CHAN 10490
Liszt: Symphonic Poems, Volume 4

This is the fourth volume of Gianandreas Noseda’s recordings of Liszt’s symphonic poems with his BBC Philharmonic. We do not often hear Hungaria these days, nor Die ideale, but Hamlet and Hunnenschlacht are better known. As so often with Liszt, one is struck by the advanced harmonic language and the originality of the ideas and the orchestration. The playing has the fire and drive that Noseda brings to romantic music; the recording is as clear and vivid as we have from to expect from Chandos
The SundayTelegraph

CHAN 10475
Rachmaninoff: The Isle of the Dead/ Youth Symphony/Symphony No. 1

Gianadnrea Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic have the work’s measure and their performance has a full-blooded intensity and fire. Tempos are well judged and orchestral textures well blended. Noseda balances a strong sense of the piece’s architecture with its expressive eloquence and rich nostalgia it is a reading that can rank alongside the classic Ormandy and Pletnev accounts, both of whom bring a special authority to the Symphony.
BBC Music Magazine

CHAN 10442
Rachmaninoff: Francesca da Rimini

Rachmaninov’s swirling chromaticism and dark palette in the prologue and epilogue, establishing a backcloth to the lovers’ fate, are graphically realised by the BBC Philharmonic and Gianandrea Noseda, and intensified by the BBC Singer’s wordless wailing as the chorus of lost souls.

CHAN 10413
Smetana: Richard III/ Wallenstein's Cam/Hakon Jarl/Prague Carnival

"This is simply the finest compilation of Smetana’s colourful symphonic poems ever put on disc.... the Chandos disc triumphs by its demonstration-quality, state-of-the-art recording. Not to be missed."

The Penguin Guide - 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12

CHAN 10417
Liszt: Symphonic Poems, Volume 3

"...The BBC orchestra is again on its toes throughout and th Chandos recording is in the demonstration class."

The Penguin Guide - 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12

CHAN 10388
Respighi: Buerlesca etc.

"...Performances of all four works are outstanding, with the Chandos sound brin our ti full riches if Respighi’s writing"

The Penguin Guide - 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12

CHAN 10375
Liszt: Symphonic Poems, Volume 2

Once more Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic are on top form, and the recording is as good as we expect from Chandos, detailed but superbly blended.
International Record Review

CHAN 10358
Shostakovich: Suite on Words of Michelangelo/ Six Romances/October

The Michelangelo cycle is perhaps Shostakovich’s most unfairly neglected masterpiece, embodying everything that is hest about late Shostakovich in its concentration and power… on balance the new recording is now a clear first choice…
International Record Review

CHAN 10298
Karlowicz: Returning Waves/ A Sorrowful Tale/Episode at a Masquerade

The BBC Philharmonic’s playing and Chandos’s recording uphold their customary high standards…
Gramophone ‘Disc of the Month’ on CHAN 10171

CHAN 10341
Liszt: Symphonic Poems, Volume 1

Such music makes huge demands and these are met by Noseda with unfaltering command and lucidity. What could so easily topple into bombast is presented with an enviable clarity and acuteness. Chandos’s sound and presentation are excellent.

CHAN 10309
Dvorak: Piano Concerto/ Violin Concerto

A brilliant and persuasive soloist…
Gramophone ‘Editor’s Choice’ on CHAN 10255 (Hummel)

CHAN 10258
Dallapiccola: Tartiniana/ Due Pezzi/Piccola Musica Notturna/Variazioni/Balletto 'Marsia'

'This is a well-performed CD in excellent sound, particularly welcome at the time of the composer's centenary.'

CHAN 10171
Karlowicz: Bianca da Molena/ Serenade/'Rebirth' Symphony

Charming and worth investigating.
Classic FM Magazine

CHAN 10081
Respighi: La Boutique fantasque, P120/ La pentola magica, P129/Prelude and Fugue, P158

No CD company has done more for Respighi over the past decade than Chandos, who seem progressively to be covering the Bolognese masters entire orchestral output, and in the process revealing more delightful music than most of us previously knew existed… an eminently recommendable disc.
International Record Review

CHAN 10058
Prokofiev: The Tale of the Stone Flower, Op. 118
