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

COLIN TWIGG TOCCATA CLASSICS REVIEW

"Performances, recording and Twigg's booklet notes are all exemplary, making for a worthwhile addition to Toccata Classics enterprising catalogue"

"Twigg's mastery of this exacting medium ...his questing approach to formal continuity across and between movements "

"Phantasy Variations on a theme of Haydn is a resourceful take on this quintessentially English form, putting its indelible theme through a logical and satisfying process of developing notation"
