woman.life.song

21 February 2025 @ 19:30

woman.life.song is a unique collaboration between five eminent women: composer Judith Weir, writers Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison and Clarissa Pinkola Estés and singer Jessye Norman, who commissioned and premiered the piece in 2000. Weir’s remarkable orchestral song cycle tells of a woman’s life from youth through first love to old age, reflecting deeply on all aspects of womanhood. Combining contemporary classical with pop, blues and jazz influences, it’s music of wonder and awe, sparkle and magic, that takes the listener far from classical music’s traditional male perspective.

Vocalist: Andrea Baker | Orchestra: Oakland Symphony | Conductor: Kalena Bovill | Composer: Judith Weir
