Bridge: Complete cello works
« on: October 05, 2017, 06:42:11 AM »
Greetings.

Searching for the complete cello (chamber) works of Frank Bridge has unearthed only one recording:



Might anyone know of others?  And is it just me, or is that a rather unfortunate album cover design?


TIA,

As for the OP, this (early chamber music) is a good disc, though I am not sure of the significance of these works; here is another worth your time.

Bridge's chamber music as a whole is likely too vast to be covered in a single release. I would focus on the string quartets and sonatas.

I did a search on "bridge cello," and didn't find anything.  My search didn't turn up the Bridge thread to which you refer.  My apologies.

No apologies needed.  :)

I excised the whole off topic discussion.
If this thread attracts little attention, a merger with the main Bridge thread might help. Will keep an eye on it.

I like that CD very much. I hadn't thought about the cover being 'unfortunate' but I think I see what you mean.  ???

Thanks; I appreciate that.  I do have some of his other works, but had been listening to one of the cello pieces on YT, and it made me want to investigate his cello chamber works.  I did order the CD in my original post; looking forward to it and more Bridge chamber works.
