FRANK BRIDGE - THE COMPLETE WORKS   is  a major revision and update of my life and work of this English composer originally published by Faber Music in 1983.  Frank Bridge - A Thematic Catalog  charted the composer's intriguing creative journey from 1900, the year of his first surviving compositions were 61 in 1941. Much has changed with regard to Bridge research since 1983. His life and work has been the subject of many post-graduate research projects. All his major works have been recorded and are more widely performed. Bridge's music has been in the public domain since 2011. April 13, 2016, when the manuscript of  Phantasie in F minor  for string quartet (H.55) was discovered in the archive of theWorshipful Company of Musicians.

 

After half a lifetime of writing about Bridge's life and work for journals, program previews and registration notes, I have a lot of writing and an extensive selection of correspondence by Bridge and his friends and some significant 'period' articles and images to create, I hope, a more complete picture of Frank Bridge inthe context of his time. I have also included full details of commercial recordings or each work (up to January 2016) within the chronological sequence.
