Bridge, Frank - Piano Music, Vol. 2: Piano Sonata / Three Sketches / Pénsees fugitives - Wass, Ashley (piano)

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
• Perhaps no other British composer of the first half of the twentieth century reveals a stylistic journey as varied as that of Frank Bridge, whose magnificent late-romantic orchestral suite The Sea (Naxos 8.557167) is his best known work.

• His later style of composition, more experimental and demanding, and with no concessions to contemporary popular taste, was strongly influenced by the war of 1914-18. This is exemplified in his masterpiece, the Piano Sonata, completed in 1924, in his Lament for Catherine, for a child lost when the Lusitania was torpedoed and, less directly, in his Three Improvisations for the Left Hand, for the pianist Douglas Fox, who had lost an arm in the war.

• Ashley Wass has won widespread plaudits for his contribution to the ever-growing catalogue of British piano music on Naxos, and specifically for his interpretations of Bridge with the release of the first volume in 2006:

“Wass's shaping of this harmonically mobile music is just as assured as his presentation of the much more conventional moulds of the earlier works: it's a valuable collection.” The Guardian

“[Bridge’s] 3 Pieces of 1912, played with the lightest of touches by Ashlev Wass, recall the salon music of Edwardian England with a charming innocence swiftly dispelled by Fairy Tale Suite of 1917. But he finds his most persuasive voice in the melancholy intensity of In Autumn (1924), written just after his mighty Sonata, with which Wass should soon complement these seven beautifully crafted works.”
