Wow! Just read the posts. Excellent! It's heartening to know that they are reading,and not only that,taking notice of such posts!

Regarding Chandos. I wonder if it's purely a matter finances? The economic downturn (as they have pointed out) and the loss of those conductors who undoubtedly had such great enthusiasm for more off the beaten track repertoire? Is it possibly more to do with some change of direction at the helm? Brian Couzens died not so long ago (*2015). Is it possible that his son has different ideas? They often do! Lyrita and Dutton manage some very interesting releases of less commercial fare. Chandos,on the other hand,judging from their releases over the last few years,seem to have very little interest if any at all. Albeit,with a few minor exceptions (I see they've brought out a cd of British tone poems). Also,their increased repetition of repertoire which has already received very good,if not excellent,recordings elsewhere,ie Atterberg and Raff,for example,when they could be spending money and time on composers and music that remains unrecorded,has been ill served on cd,or available only via inadequate recordings.

Just wondering?!
