Norman O' Neill. Chamber Works for strings and piano. The Bridge Quartet - Michael Dussek. EM Records CD005 2012.


"Performances by London’s Bridge Quartet, for over 20 years ambassadors for English music, are ravishing; and pianist, Michael Dussek, who has his work cut out for him in all but the String Quartet, is nothing short of amazing. In composing the piano parts for (his wife) Adine, O’Neill knew he was writing for a highly accomplished artist with no technical limitations. Accordingly he wrote for the piano as he would have for the most skilled virtuoso, and Dussek rises to every challenge, especially in the very difficult-sounding Quintet.
Here then is a collection of never-before recorded works by a virtually forgotten composer given in brilliant performances and superior recorded sound. Urgently recommended."
Fanfare, January 2014

"The performances are superb, the recording vivid and beautifully balanced. The presentation is ideal and if in any way you like English music then this disc is a must. Even if you don't this disc is a must. In fact you have little choice but to buy it, please".

“Throughout this generous and musically well-balanced recital Redgate and her endlessly supportive and sensitive accompanist Michael Dussek play with supreme naturalness…Glowingly recorded and played with exemplary taste and skill, this is one of the most distinguished flute discs to have come my way in a long time. More please!” International Record Review

“Michael Dussek is a first-rate accompanist with a scrupulous ear for balance and ensemble. With all this virtuosity one might expect an embarrass de richesses, but not a bit of it! The message of this CD is that simple is beautiful, and that simple can also rustle up a storm to make your hair stand on end…Don’t just take my word for it, buy the disc.”
