Performers Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Bridge was unusual among English composers of his generation (Vaughan Williams, Holst, Ireland) in that he started in the approved conservative style and got wilder as he got older; in fact, he was probably the only important English composer to start taking his cues from such European modernists as Bartok, Schoenberg and Berg...This disc shows Bridge early and late, and both are worth hearing...The Bridge Quartet's performances are juicy and understanding..." -Raymond, ARG
