JAV 120 Frank Bridge & Friends — Todd Wilson

Revel in the orchestral richness of Quimby’s Opus 50 played with elegant expertise by Todd Wilson. Wilson’s skillful performance, the gorgeous solo voices and ensembles of the organ, and the poetic beauty of Bridge’s music create a winning combination of performer, instrument and repertoire. The English Horn and Clarinet solos of "In Memoriam C.H.H. Parry" are particularly lovely. This CD is a veritable primer on the organ music of Frank Bridge and its antecedents. Informed by the sonic ebb and flow of the English cathedral tradition, neo-classic influences are abundantly evident, most tellingly in Bridge’s "Three Pieces," written in 1939. Also includes works by Bairstow, Britten, Ireland, Walton and Whitlock.
