Reviews

'How many string quartets play encores? Those that don't should have a listen to the Delmé Quartet's highly entertaining selection. The playing is excellent.' (Classic CD)

'This is quite magnificent' (CDReview)
Cherry Ripe, from 1916, is a miniature tone poem, whose bustling opening gives no hint of the tune, which eventually eases in unannounced, emerging out of the contrapuntal texture as a second subject. Towards the climax, Bridge cleverly combines his own energetic subject with the tune.
