Especially Britten's variations on the Theme by Bridge, but each composition on this Disc reveals a bright, fresh, inventive, alive, mental agility and interest in keeping the listenener both responsive to his varied ideas and rewarding melodic developments. Not works of music that lull you to mind-wandering: this should keep you alert and involved.
