Hugh Wood : Violin Concerto

Hugh Wood's Cello Concerto, concentrated into a single movement, is full of vigorous and dramatic orchestral writing; the ethereal Violin Concerto, performed by its dedicatee, is in three movements, centring upon the mercurial scherzo.

"[The concertos] still sound fresh a quarter of a century later... this is powerful music, beautifully performed."
The Independent on Sunday 2003
