“How often in today’s vocal music do we find ourselves surprised, truly touched by simple, unpredictably expressive music? In My Mother in Love . . . Anna Weesner reaches the listener uninsistently and indelibly from a fresh musical source as natural as it is mysterious.”

—American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Music, on awarding Weesner the Virgil Thomson Award for Vocal Music


Two new recordings are on their way into the world: one is an album of chamber music for winds and strings and the other is a new studio version of My Mother in Love. Details forthcoming . . .

Happy to announce the award of a 2023 Fromm Music Foundation Commission that will support the creation of a new album of songs! Working title: Hester Prynne Was Gorgeous
