Judith Weir's major orchestral works. including Natural History, Forest and The Welcome Arrival of Rain

Weir’s music - often inspired by her love of nature and her interest in the world around her - is fresh, intelligent, approachable and evocative. Natural History - which she describes as a Taoist Carnival of the Animals-is set to ancient Chinese texts on horses, birds, fish and men and the music hints at an oriental and exotic world and in Moon and Star Weir uses the instruments highest and lowest registers to portray the vast expanse of our universe.


"The sounds she creates are invariably engaging, and the webs of ideas arresting" - The Guardian
"Weir’s characteristic voice is just as recognisable on the larger scale of the orchestra. There’s the same feeling for strong, un-muddy colours and unobtrusive organic growth, the same use of familiar materials in unfamiliar ways to make serious points lightly... The performances, under the ever-reliable Martyn Brabbins, rare excellent, with Ailish Tynan a personable soloist in Natural History. The recordings are clear and bright, like the music itself."
