Adagio in E


By Frank Bridge

SKU: NOV580337 Category:


Bridge’s early works those written before the first World War were more late Romantic in style, warmly expansive, than his mature works. The Adagio is a four-Voice fugue of poetic expressiveness that makes full use of the instrument’s tonal resources. British composer Frank Bridge was active in the early decades of the 20th century and was a highly respected conductor, violist and teacher his sole composition student having been Benjamin Britten. Britten honoured his former teacher in his work Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge, based on a theme from one of Bridge’s pieces for String quartet.
