I have no objection to Chandos issuing cds which they believe will sell. Companies like Chandos have to survive in a difficult financial climate and, like BIS, they clearly feel the need to record music with a wider appeal. If the sales of standard repertoire recordings help to fund recordings of previously unrecorded music that makes sense.

My beef with Chandos is that this is not happening- unless you count the recent Casella recordings(which of course duplicate the recent Naxos versions of the same pieces Roll Eyes
Chandos's commitment to new(ie unrecorded) British music seems to have withered since the death of Richard Hickox. They have Sir Andrew Davis and Edward Gardner.....but have used Davis to re-record Elgar and Delius and Gardner(who does not want to be labelled "a British Music conductor" to re-record Benjamin Britten.
