“Sparkling performances from Bridget Bolliger and Andrew West”
BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
Limelight Magazine – ‘Dancing Shadows’
“With such an outstanding pedigree it’s a crime Hyde’s music is not widely championed. ‘Dancing Shadows’ is a collection of Hyde’s chamber music for flute and piano. Swiss Australian flautist Bridget Bolliger and pianist Andrew West are wonderful advocates for this repertoire. The title recording has Bolliger doing just that , as the flautist dances up and down the entire range of the instrument ….demonstrates the impressive musicianship of Bolliger and West. Bolliger’s ravishing upper register shines in the ‘andante pastorale’ and West is a generous and skilful accompanist.”

Gramophone UK – ‘Dancing Shadows’
The music for flute and piano by Miriam Hyde.
‘Dancing Shadows’ contains some frankly ravishing music, delicately and finely wrought, continually pulling free of its descriptive moorings to be carried off by darker undercurrents. One couldn’t hope for better advocates for this music than flautist Bridget Bolliger and pianist Andrew West .
