Notes & Reviews:
This important new recording is the first ever CD of Judith Weir's major orchestral works. Its release will coincide with the BBC Symphony Orchestra's and BBC Radio 3's annual January contemporary music event at the Barbican which this year celebrates the music of Judith Weir and includes live performances of works featured on this disc. The Queen's Medal for Music was presented to Judith Weir at a special ceremony at the Royal Academy of Music on December 13, 2007. Judith is the third recipient of this award, which is made annually to an individual (or group of musicians) who is judged to have had a major influence on the musical life of the nation. The two previous recipients are Sir Charles Mackerras and Bryn Terfel.
