Hugh Wood : Symphony/ Scenes from Comus

Hugh Wood's Symphony is his most ambitious work to date: its four movements refer to musical sources as diverse as Mozart, Wagner and Janacek while never detracting from its coherence and power. It is coupled with Wood's setting of Milton's masque.

"One of the outstanding British symphonies of the last century." BBC Music Magazine 2002
Gramophone Awards nomination 2002
