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
"The superb Bridge Quartet"

1)  Colin Twigg is a founder member of the the Bridge Quartet and its leader. His chamber music, composed throughout a busy performing career, has attracted much admiration from audiences whenever scheduled in concerts. We are now delighted to have recently released a comprehensive collection on CD for Toccata Classics enabling listeners to have permanent access to this treasure trove of diverse and refreshingly imaginative works

2)   We are delighted that on Easter Sunday morning our recording of the Frank Bridge Viola Quintet of 1901 was "resurrected" on James Jolly's morning programme. This will stay on the Radio 3 iPlayer for another 3 weeks so to hear it complete follow the link:-

It is after 1 hour 28 minutes of the programme.
It is very "lush" and tuneful, being a very early Bridge work and we would LOVE to interest someone in publishing it.
