Judith Weir : Piano Concerto/ Distance & Enchantment

Judith Weir's own choice of her chamber music featuring piano explore Weir's fascination with folk music: the sparkling Piano Concerto explores her Scottish roots.

"Small-scale and elusive... but they are anything but diminutive in their emotional power… she has the ability to make the most mundane of musical material seem surprising."
The Guardian Classical CD of the Week 2003
