Elegy: 2020 - Latest Reviews!
Stephen J. Wood’s ‘Elegy’ written in the 2020 lockdown in the beautiful solitude of the lake district is exquisitely lonely and hauntingly poignant. It is crafted from an artist who clearly understands the instrument from the inside. There is nothing pretentious, affected or unnatural about the expansive unfolding of this touching and wonderfully evocative seven minute tone poem - it's beautiful - bravo on a great piece and lovely playing - an elegy for our times.

Elegy: 2020 - The composer Stephen J Wood has written a beautiful new piece called Elegy, entirely so that it may fundraise for good causes connected with Covid 19.
A finely crafted, meditative piece of music with cantabile melody and swiftly moving harmonies beneath: perfect for describing this time. Nancy Litten 31/05/20
