Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Manoug Parikian, violin / Moray Welsh, cello
Wood's concertos date from 1969 (the Cello) and 1970 (the Violin) are characteristically gritty, structurally impeccable works, every bar apparently carved out of a single, dense block of material. They are real, highly wrought concertos, building upon the great tradition but never content just to imitate it.
