Notes and Editorial Reviews
There is a real affinity between the works of Rebecca Clarke and Frank Bridge included on this album, and—with its contrasting, lighter Vaughan Williams coupling—this is a perfectly planned recital from one of the country’s leading cellists.

REVIEW:

Bridge’s Cello Sonata incline more to rhapsody than rhetoric, and draws particularly heartfelt playing from Clein and Hadland in the lingeringly regretful opening of the second movement. The Vaughan Williams arrangements elicit from Clein and Hadland a vein of poised, eloquent poetry, and in the concluding ‘as I walked over London Bridge’ a spark sense of mischief.
