No Notes Found.
'Richard Hickox's survey of Frank Bridge goes from strength to strength with a well-chosen programme that boasts excellent playing - and a premier recording of the 1911 Coronation March. Most impressive is the macabre Phantasm and the tone poem Summer, written at the start of the First World War, it's almost a farewell to a more peaceful era.'
The Independent

'The performances under Hickox are as authoritative as ever.'
The Guardian

'As before, Hickox obtains excellent performances from his Cardiff musicians with some particularly expressive woodwind playing; Howard Shelley is a first-rate soloist in the Phantasm. There is excellent sound in this SACD recording, and authoritative notes from the Bridge expert Paul Hindmarsh. Warmly recommended.'
Gramphone
