JUDITH WEIR  

(b 1954 )

Judith Weir’s music has achieved considerable popularity with audiences and critics alike. She trained with John Tavener while still at school and subsequently with Robin Holloway at Cambridge University. Her 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, although she has also achieved considerable international renown for her extensive catalogue of orchestral and chamber works.
