Bridge to America

In a chamber music concert, works are often chosen that represent the Classical, Romantic, and Modern periods. That is not the case with this program by the Artaria String Quartet. Members of the Artaria have bravely programmed works that were all written between 1915 and 1936 and reveal the transition from late Romanticism to Modernism by three composers who best represent those changing forces—each in his own way. The too-seldom heard music of Frank Bridge served as an impetus that would feed the genius of both his student and fellow Englishman Benjamin Britten and his American counterpart Samuel Barber. Within that continuity is still a remarkable variation of style and concept that we will have the good fortune of experiencing.
