Toronto Symphony Signs New Contract with Chandos Records; SHEHERAZADE Gets First Release

Chandos Records announced today that it has signed a new recording contract with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO). The first TSO recording released by Chandos will be Rimsky-Korsakov's Sheherazade, recorded live at Roy Thomson Hall in June 2013, led by TSO Music Director Peter Oundjian and featuring TSO Concertmaster Jonathan Crow. Two further TSO recordings are planned by Chandos.

"Chandos Records is delighted with this new collaboration with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra," said Ralph Couzens, Managing Director of Chandos Records. "TSO Conductor Laureate Sir Andrew Davis, and, more recently, TSO Music Director Peter Oundjian, have a distinguished history with both the orchestra and with Chandos Records. Chandos has produced many acclaimed recordings with both artists and looks forward to future projects with the superb Toronto Symphony Orchestra."

Based in the U.K., Chandos Records Ltd. is one of the world's premier independent classical music record labels. The company is renowned for its superb sound and has won many prestigious awards for its natural sound quality. The live TSO recording of Sheherazade will be released by Chandos in Canada on August 29 and in the United States on August 26. The worldwide digital release date is August 5.

"I am delighted that the TSO is working with Chandos, a company that has recorded rich and diverse repertoire with an extraordinary group of orchestras from around the world," said TSO Music Director Peter Oundjian. "We're particularly excited that this release coincides with our summer European tour."
