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 dramatic setting of Milton's masque Comus, the story of a wanderer lost in an enchanted wood.
