Notes & Reviews:

Jacques Ibert (1890 - 1962) is a significant French composer whose success began early, when he worn the Prix de Rome. He became sought after for his essentially Galli style, lightness of touch, and genuine melodic gift. His String Quartet - hardly ever recorded - is a major work of great power. The Souvenir for quartet and double bass is a premiere recording, specially sent to the Bridge Quartet by publishers Alphonse Leduc.

MusicWeb International
The performances are superb, the recording vivid and beautifully balanced. The presentation is ideal and if in any way you like English music then this disc is a must. Even if you don't, this disc is a must. In fact you have little choice: buy it, please.
