Cherry Ripe

1916; for string quartet

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.
