The Times

Madeleine Mitchell has promoted much contemporary music, but now her violin turns wistful and melodic, wrapped in early 20th-century reveries. The seven charming Frank Bridge selections show her at her best. Andrew Ball’s piano accompaniments lean toward the stolid – unhelpful in salon pieces needing finesse. A curate’s egg CD, tastiest in Bridge’s long-lost Morceau caractéristique, faintly Russian in hue. ×××
