While an ardent English music enthusiast(esp.for chamber music), I am not much of a Bliss fan usually. However, i really took to this disc and particularly so for the Piano Quintet. This must be one of Bliss's earliest compositions dating from 1915. It is a very tuneful work with the first movement a special delight showing resource in combining marchlike figures with strong hints of English folk song(slightly odd for Bliss compared to say some of his contemporaries like Howells & Moeran). A short relaxed interlude for a second movement gives way to a tremendous finale. This third movement is extremely impressive, the music shows tremendous energy & propulsion. Wow factor here & hats off to the musicians & esp. Peter Donohoe, the pianist. A good disc as an introduction to this composer. For other piano quintets from English composers try the ones by Vaughan Williams, Frank Bridge & for something a little bit different the slow movement of the Bax quintet

this is music that brings peace to troubled minds and brings beautiful thoughts to a mind full of failure and lost hope.
