Notes & Reviews:

"Hugh Wood is now almost 70, and this recording of his Symphony, the largest work in a relatively small output, should help it take its place as one of the outstanding British symphonies of the last century. It's a compelling mixture of lyricism and spikiness, with some passages soaring with the intensity of Berg, and others bubbling with the exuberance of Tippett... [Andrew Davis] draws performances of real conviction from his players and singers." ***** BBC Music
