Notes & Reviews:

Legendary performances on CD for the first time! Frank Bridge (1879–1941) is most often mentioned as the teacher of a later and more famous British composer, Benjamin Britten, but his own music has become more and more admired after a long period of neglect. It was his orchestral music that suffered most; the suite The Sea was the only one of his fifteen major orchestral pieces to be performed with any regularity. Oration (1930) and Phantasm (1931) were Bridge’s most substantial orchestral works and his only concertos. By the time of their composition, Bridge was in his early 50s and at the height of his creative powers.
