The Wiggelsworth interesting as , to my ear, has a chamber-like quality most of the time, rather than that of full-throated orchestral forces, and I suspect quite a difficult work for both the occasional orchestra soloists, pianist, and ensemble coordination , but for me more perspiration involved than inspiration, a one-hear. The Mozart suggests again there may actually be a God, until one then reads the latest news from Washington DC,London, Brasilia.
