Composition Seminar with Judith Weir
Judith Weir’s will visit the Music Department to lead a seminar on her music. Appreciated by audiences and critics alike, Judith's music is characterised by a distinctive textural clarity and a lucid but idiosyncratic harmonic idiom. Often drawing on sources from medieval history, as well as the traditional stories and music of her native Scotland, she is best known for her operas and theatre works, and has achieved international recognition for her orchestral and chamber works.
