Judith Weir

This is a nice concise pen sketch of the Scottish composer Judith Weir who is one of the better know composers working in the UK. Lookout for her Piano concerto and the interesting Ardnamurchan Point for two pianos.

Judith Weir by Julie Williams

“If there is one word I would use to sum up Judith Weir’s music, it has to be ‘enjoyable’. It is pleasant, likeable and accessible but never banal. It has a simple, clean sound which is modern without ever being difficult or obscure.”
