Product description

Product Description

Chamber music has played a significant part in the output of all four composers featured on this disc. The piano quartets by Bridge, Bax and Walton are sufficiently heterogeneous to illustrate the multiplicity of approaches the genre can accommodate as well as highlighting the stylistic diversity of British chamber music dating from what may be regarded as its Golden Age - the first decades of the twentieth century.

About the Artist

Since its breakthrough success at the 2007 Royal Over-Seas League Competition, Cappa Ensemble has emerged as a group of outstanding promise. After winning Music Network's Young Musicwide Award in 2009, concert tours around Ireland, appearances at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Radio France-Montpellier Festival, Verbier Festival and broadcasts on RTÉ Lyric FM, BBC Radio 3 and Radio France soon followed. The ensemble has enjoyed collaborative projects with artists such as Nicholas Daniel, Pekka Kussisto and Jörg Widmann and its repertoire has evolved with a strong focus on both the piano quartet and string trio idioms. They have toured extensively in Australasia and Japan and they made their Wigmore Hall debut in December 2008. In 2009, Cappa Ensemble studied with the Artemis Quartet at the Queen Elizabeth School of Music, Belgium and held a Fellowship at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. They have also performed in masterclass to renowned musicians Gabor Takacs-Nagy, Ralf Gothoni and Alfred Brendel. The ensemble takes its name from the famous 17th century Italian violin-maker Gioffredo Cappa.
