Tempesta di Mare on Chandos Records.

Since 2004, Tempesta di Mare has recorded exclusively for Chandos Records, one of the world’s premiere classical music record labels. The company has championed rare and neglected repertoire, playing into Tempesta’s panache for finding, performing, and recording rediscoveries. The company’s aim is to present an exciting and varied selection of superbly recorded music to as many people as possible.

Chandos is universally acclaimed for the excellence of its sound quality, recording in 24bit/96Khz PCM and now for ‘surround sound’ SACD’s in DSD.  For more on Chandos and full catalog, visit chandos.net.
