We take a fond look back at The Big Picture by Judith Weir which was commissioned for and premiered as part of Aberdeen Art Gallery’s re-opening celebrations in 2019. 

The Big Picture is set to different poems exploring the relationship between music and colour and is written to be performed by both professional and community musicians and singers. 

We are delighted to be joined by Judith Weir and Roger Williams for a conversation following the screening.
