“…what makes this Somm disc especially valuable is the spellbinding account of the Rhapsody Trio for two violins and viola, perhaps the most elusive and fantastic of Bridge's late chamber scores, in the weird, near-atonal filigree writing of its outer sections. ...another disc that all Bridge enthusiasts will want to own.”
“…an attractive collection of Bridge's shorter chamber pieces, neatly presented in affectionate idiomatic performances.”
