Since their formation in 1989, the Bridge String Quartet has travelled widely to festivals in the USA, France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Bulgaria and Kenya, and has broadcast English music live on several continental radio stations. Closer to home, the Quartet has strong links with the English Music Festival.

Heralded by The Times as “just the sort of champion the newest of new music needs”, while being praised as “impeccable in his pianism and unfailing in his idiomatic grasp” by Gramophone, Takenouchi’s curiosity and a natural penchant for integrity makes his playing and vast repertoire unique amongst his generation of pianists: his love for the music of classical masters – particularly Haydn, Beethoven and Chopin – sits side by side with his passion for the music of Medtner and Rachmaninov, lesser-known British composers such as Sterndale Bennett and Parry, and the contemporary repertoire.
