Composer's Notes

Weathered is set in five 5-minute movements, each one exploring a different weathered element: Metal, Heart, Stone, Wood, and Earth. These weathered elements are both beautiful and poignant; a rusted bridge, a broken heart, a wind-worn castle, a majestic forest, and a warming planet. Weathered also touches on our collective global experiences of the COVID pandemic and the alarm of global warming.

— Anna Clyne

Press Quotes

"Rarely have I heard a contemporary composition with such melodic content as this concert. A start that immediately transports your ears into the speed of the music is a surprise in itself... Very exciting to listen to and to see."
Opera Magazine

"For the special sound combinations that are hidden in an orchestra, Clyne has a fine nose."
De Volkskrant

"The writing for the soloist and theorchestra is strikingly vivid and colourful, from the opening moments, with their sombre, plainchant-like references, to the end of the finale almost half an hour later when the plainchant returns to usher in the quiet, desolate close."
The Guardian
