Notes & Reviews:

Volume 5 of Bridge's Stefan Wolpe series contains premiere recordings, and is the most musically wide-ranging of any of Bridge's Wolpe CD's to date. The disc begins with the delightful children's puppet show tale, Lazy Andy Ant. Suite for Marthe Krueger, for two pianos, was composed for Marthe Krueger, a dancer/choreographer, and student of Martha Graham. The piece was never published, and was given its premiere by Quattro Mani in 2007, shortly before this recording was made. The songs on this disc span several decades and continents, and include art songs sung in German and English, and popular song arrangements sung in Hebrew. For those interested in one of the 20th century's least known, yet most fascinating musical personalities, this disc is highly recommended.
