Judith Weir: Master of the Queen's Music
Celebrating the Crown's first female Court Composer
Presented by the Park Lane Group
Park Lane Ensemble dir. Roger Montgomery
Trinity Laban Chamber Choir cond. Stephen Jackson
This summer composer Judith Weir was appointed as Master of The Queen's Music. She is the first woman to hold this acclaimed post and the appointment has been hailed as excellent and imaginative.
Join us in the Playhouse to celebrate Judith's 'addictive, scintillating music' (The Guardian) in the presence of the composer, as well as works by the previous six Masters, from the appointment of Elgar in 1924 to the most recent holder of the post, Peter Maxwell Davies.
