Assembled by award-winning recitalist Simon Watterton, this original compilation spotlights the works of an unjustly neglected composer. Frank Bridge (1879–1941) wrote orchestral works as well as chamber music. His students included Benjamin Britten, who championed his teacher's music and paid tribute to him in an internationally renowned orchestral work, Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge.
Selections include Sonata, Bridge's best-known piano work; Capriccio Nos. 1 and 2; three miniature Pastorals; A Sea Idyll; Three Poems; Lament; Three Sketches Suite; Four Characteristic Pieces; Fairy Tale Suite; Three Improvisations for the Left Hand; The Hour Glass; Winter Pastoral; and others.
