Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

BRIDGE: String Quartets Nos. 1 and 3 8.557133
BRIDGE: Phantasy / String Quartets Nos. 2 and 4 8.557283

The Maggini’s complete outstanding cycle, arguably the finest British contribution to quartet literature. The Phantasy Quartet, with Martin Roscoe joining three of the quartet members, in seven sections lasting only 12 minutes, is another striking piece in Bridge’s early style. Passionate performances and vivid recording.

Review By Andrew Achenbach,Gramophone,

"Even judged by the standards of precious Maggini/Naxos offerings, this is an exceptionally fine disc...A superb coupling, then, impeccably captured by the Walton/Thomason production team and well annotated by Andrew Burn. I impatiently await Quartets Nos 2 and 4."
