James Wood : Two Men Meet

Three works that reflect the exotic and sensuous geometry of Wood's output: the energetic and iridescent percussion concerto, Two Men Meet, Each Presuming the Other to be from a Distant Planet; Phainomena, characterised by meditative, swirling choral textures; and the highly charged concerto for quarter-tone marimba, Venancio Mbande Talking with the Trees.

"James Wood is an all-round musical explorer of a philosophical cast of mind yet with an ardent Messiaen-like sensibility... each piece is an ambitious synthesis of music and the world."
The Sunday Times 1997
