Richard Causton's Millenium Scenes  is top record of 2014

On 7 December, The Sunday Times critics picked their top 100 records of 2014 and we are delighted to announce that Richard Causton's Millennium Scenes came out top in the Contemporary Composers category.

'Causton is among our most imaginative composers, as this sequence of five works makes clear. The powerful orchestral diptych of Millennium Scenes has a fierce "social criticism" opening, flaunting declamatory unison strings, screeching piccolos and clubby thuds.'
