Richard Causton: Chamber Symphony
Richard Causton's 2009 Chamber Symphony, performed at a 'Music of Today' concert by the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Ryan Wigglesworth.
The Philharmonia Orchestra's 'Music of Today' series, curated until recently by composer Julian Anderson, is an opportunity to showcase recent music by some of today's important emerging composers. In February 2011, they gave a portrait concert of 1971-born Richard Causton. This week, Pre-Hear spotlights his Chamber Symphony of 2009, an abstract work cast in two movements. Ryan Wigglesworth conducts.
