Catalogue Number: 01L050
Description: The only currently available version of the Rhapsody Trio, a 17-minute work from his "modernist" period in 1928 which was only premiered in 1965 at Aldeburgh. Harmonics, pizzicato and tremolando and subtle bowing create a magical world of special effects in mysterious, nocturnal music which is both enigmatic and strangely evocative. Bridge Quartet, Michael Dussek (piano).
