Monday Link Round Up: June 8

Some top stories from over the weekend:

We wrote about Judith Weir’s new song cycle last week, which premiered on Saturday.  The Guardian and The Telegraph each have reviews of the work which was decidedly well received.

You can also read a review of a new album of Weir’s choral music, titled Storm.

The Dallas Opera’s new initiative to train women conductors has chosen the first six participants out of 103 applications.  Read more here.

The New York Philharmonic has announced that Anna Thorvaldsdottir was named the Kravis Emerging Composer.  She is only the second composer in the relatively new program (founded in 2012), which will include a stipend and a commissioned work.  Learn more about Thorvaldsdottir on her website.

Maria Schneider’s Orchestra has a new album, and the New York Times has a review.
