Judith Weir – Festival composer in residence
Wonder, intoxication, lightness, wisdom, storytelling, sparseness, delicacy– just some of the words most commonly used to describe the music of Judith Weir. Said to have ‘the knack of making simple musical ideas appear freshly mysterious’, she was born in Cambridge to a Scottish family and spent several years working as a community musician, also later directing the Spitalfields Festival, whilst building a catalogue of works and a reputation as one of the country’s foremost composers. Her music often draws on sources from medieval history, as well as the traditional stories and music of her native Scotland. Among many honours and awards, she was in 2014 appointed Master of the Queen’s Music.
