Frank Bridge’s reputation as the teacher of his most famous student, Benjamin Britten, has long hindered appreciation of his own impeccably crafted music.

Between the early Phantasie Trio (1907) and Miniatures (1908) and the masterful Piano Trio No. 2 (1928-29), Bridge developed from being a pupil of Stanford to becoming a composer whose music — by turns graceful, nocturnal and vigorous — pointed towards the future.

“Wass plays with identification and sensitivity, with a delicate touch and resourceful use of pedal to create atmosphere… Bridge enthusiasts need not hesitate.” BBC Music Magazine on 8.557842
