Notes & Reviews:

In this tuneful and attractive program, pianist Daniel Tong and the London Bridge Ensemble present three major chamber works by Frank Bridge from his engaging pre-First World War period, including the recording of Paul Hindmarsh's edition of the Violin Sonata. Commanding performances of the well-known Piano Quintet of 1912 and the comparatively little-known Phantasie for string quartet, with which Bridge won second prize in the Cobbett Competition in 1905, make a fine group. These chamber works are complemented by charming performances of three solo piano pieces - April, Rosemary and Valse Capricieuse.

"...I love the 'over the top' romanticism and the beautiful ensemble writing. The London Bridge Ensemble has certainly rendered this piece less unwieldy to me ears. The string quartet has a completely different texture. It recalls a bit of the Wolf Italian Serenade sometimes, and there are touches that remind me of Dvorak and Borodin. A few piano miniatures complete this very satisfying program."-American Record Guide
