Composer Judith Weir

On our October cover CD, we present a collection of modern British masterworks commissioned by BBC Radio 3. The disc includes recordings of music by Jonathan Harvey, Malcolm Arnold, Judith Weir and Colin Matthews, as well as two works by recent winners of the BBC Inspire competition, both aged 17.
