O'Neill Piano Quintet 3rd movement

O'Neill Theme and Variations for Piano Trio

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."

"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."

Howells Girl’s Song
Those Blue Remembered Hills
EM Records EMRCD065
Roderick Williams, Bridge Quartet
Gurney The Western Playground; songs by Howells and Gurney

“Gurney’s cycle, and even more so this brilliant performance by Williams, Dussek and the Bridge Quartet, make this disc an absolute must-have, not just for Gurney aficionados but for all lovers of English song, indeed all song…Howells’ Girl’s Song, brimming with desire and visceral feeling, may last less than 90 seconds, but Williams and Dussek offer a masterclass in musical articulation and expression…best of all is the compelling directness and simplicity of “King David”, with its antique modal and pentatonic tints. Both Williams and Dussek rise to tremendous heights of eloquent expression…Having listened to Those Blue Remembered Hills, I do not think Williams has done anything finer.”
Opera Today
“A wonderful performance of a wonderful song.”
“Michael Dussek is at his usual, imperious best.”

The English Flute, with Celia Redgate, Flute.
Divine Art dda25061

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.”
Pan Magazine (British Flute Society).

Rimsky-Korsakov The Waves Part

"Savenko's smooth and attractive voice is well suited to this repertoire...Michael Dussek is an excellent accompanist".
American Record Guide

“With this disc, Vassily Savenko and Michael Dussek have not only opened up a neglected area of the song repertory but have done so with impeccable performances that come as close to being definitive as any performance can be.
