Rory Macdonald & RSNO - Thomas Wilson: Symphonies Nos. 2 & 5 - The Sunday Times

Nearly two years after Linn’s release with the same performers of Wilson’s third and fourth symphonies, this disc rounds out his canon of five (No 1 was withdrawn). No 2 is in three movements; it is music of exalted rhetoric, edgy intensity and the solidest craftsmanship. No 5, his last completed work, is a superb single span that embraces a luminous excursion for strings. Splendid, devoted performances.
