Reviews

Hugh Wood is usually thought of as Schoenbergian, but his Poem, Op 35, is unabashed Stravinsky, particularly the white-note, declamatory opening flourish, twice recalled. Less than eight minutes long, the work is a marvel of concision, and every bit as good as Stravinsky.
Paul Driver, Sunday Times, 2/5/2006

There's a touchingly direct 'Poem' from Hugh Wood, which strikes a note of distinctively English lyric ecstasy.
Ivan Hewett, BBC Music Magazine, 8/1/2006
