ClassicalSource hailed the work of Philip Sawyers, English Symphony Orchestra Composer-in-Association, as “the kind of music music lovers have been looking for for decades.” With a melodic genius and a dramatic sense of form, his new Violin Concerto, heard here in its world premiere, is one of the most anticipated new scores of the year. The concert concludes with Schumann’s bracing and poignant C major Symphony, a work of tremendous power and humanity and a touching manifestation of Schumann’s dedication to his wife, Clara.

“Woods has seized on the essence of this Schumann Symphony. His reading is smooth, grand and exciting… One of the best recordings of the work. Five stars” Audiophile Audition
