Faculty of Music


Richard Causton

Richard Causton, the Music Faculty’s Reader in Composition, has been described as ‘one of the most courageous and uncompromising artists working today’. He introduces this term’s Composers’ Workshops and welcomes to the Faculty those interested in new music before speaking about his own work, focussing on two works for large orchestra, Twenty-Seven Heavens (2012) and Millennium Scenes (1999/2001).


The Faculty’s series of Composers’ Workshops is open to students in all years of the undergraduate music course, as well as masters and doctoral students, indeed anyone with an interest in the creation of new music. Because space is limited, please email Richard Causton ( if you are not a Faculty member and wish to attend.
