Description: Bridge’s sonata is pretty well spoken for these days but its disc mates are not. Oddly, this is still only the second recording available (Mark Bebbington on SOMM 13 years ago is the other) of Lambert's sonata (1929) with its original synthesis of jazz, other popular music and contemporary French music while Reizenstein’s second sonata (1964), notable for its elegiac slow movement and perpetuum mobile finale, also has only one other available recording (Martin Jones on Lyrita). Original 1992 release.
