Resonate: Winter Song by Judith Weir
About the piece
In ‘Winter Song’, Judith Weir challenged herself to make every player a soloist, as intricate melodic lines are passed throughout the orchestra. Emotionally, the music takes its inspiration from walking through the difficult days of winter, and the idea that simply keeping going, maintaining forward motion, may lead to better times.
