Julian Cochran in 1998

Julian Cochran (born 14 June 1974) is an English-born Australian composer.

Cochran's earlier works show stylistic influences from Impressionist music and his later works are more noticeably influenced by Classical music and folk music of Eastern Europe.[1] Cochran's piano compositions, such as the piano sonatas, demand considerable virtuosity from the performer.[2] The piano works include Russian Toccata, eight Preludes for Piano Forte, four scherzi, five Romanian Dances, Animation Suite composed of Tin Sentinel, Fire Dance, Clockwork Doll, Wooden Dolls (Matreshki) and Flydian Galop, five mazurkas, the two-part impressionistic work Maelstrom, two waltzes and three piano sonatas.[3] Cochran also wrote orchestral and chamber music including the trio for violin and oboe trio, sextet for string quartet, oboe and bassoon Zorya Vechernyaya, the orchestral work "Symphonic Tale" and choral works.[4][5]

Cochran's music has been performed in prominent concert halls throughout the word, including concerts at Carnegie Hall [6][7] in New York, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw,[8] the Berlin Konzerthaus[9] and the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic Hall in Russia,[10] and the music receives regular radio broadcasts.[11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18]
