Recording of the Year accolade for King's composer

Cover of 'Millennium Scenes'

A CD of music by King's Fellow Richard Causton has just been named The Sunday Times recording of the year for contemporary music.

The Sunday Times said of Richard's recording, 'Millennium Scenes' (NMC) : "Causton is among our most imaginative composers, and these five works, all substantial, often with flaring brilliance, are almost too much to take in. They will repay many listenings."

The recording was released last March and won immediate praise from the critics. International Record Review (IRR) said: "Richard Causton has been a significant figure in contemporary British music for almost two decades now and this is the first release devoted entirely to his music. As an overview of his output over some 15 years, it confirms both the singularity and the consistency of his musical vision. An invaluable release."
