Description: Although SOMM issued three single discs of Bridge’s piano music, they don’t have everything that is on these three discs. Mostly miniatures and genre pieces, they show a debt to French contemporaries such as Ravel, Debussy and Fauré while still having a thread of Englishness running more or less deeply through them. 3 CDs. Peter Jacobs (piano). Original 1990 Continuum releases.
