Natural History

Live from the Barbican Hall, London, Tom Service presents the first concert in a weekend dedicated to leading British composer Judith Weir.

Weir's Forest grows from a tiny 'seed' of melody into a dense, flourishing work for large orchestra, while her song-cycle Natural History draws on Taoist poetry. After the interval, The welcome arrival of rain vividly evokes sensations associated with the Indian monsoon.

Weir's music is interspersed with folk music from concertina maestro Simon Thoumire and his band, and the English Acoustic Collective.

Presented by Tom Service live from St Giles Cripplegate in London's Barbican Centre.
