The Bridge Quartet

This is an outstanding recital of Bridge chamber works ….. It is a sign of the sheer quality of the Bridge Quartet’s playing that even in the composer’s more idiomatically remote passages, the music comes surging off the page. Ripely expressive, yet always sensitive to Bridge’s textural inventiveness, this fine ensemble sounds utterly transported by these rarefied sounds. SOMM CD 087 STRAD 2009
