This review reflects the Bridge Quartet’s ongoing reputation as an ambassador for English music through enterprising programming supported by excellent recordings. The group has travelled widely to festivals in USA, France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Bulgaria and Kenya and has broadcast English music live on the BBC and on various continental radio stations.
The history of the Bridge Quartet has been sprinkled with “discoveries”, As chosen artists for EM Recordings, the quartet members have relished opportunities to research and perform chamber music including neglected works by Norman O’Neill, Sir Hubert Parry, Goossens, Hurlstone and Howells to name a few. The most recent explorations have been on Ivor Gurney his song cycles with tenor Charles Daniels and baritone Roderick Williams. “Roderick Williams sings The Western Playland with great understanding and engagement. Michael Dussek and The Bridge Quartet are exemplary partners for him” (Music Web International June 2020)
