  • John Pickard (né le 11 septembre 1963) est un compositeur contemporain de musique classique anglais.
  • John Pickard (born 11 September 1963) is a British classical composer.Pickard was born in Burnley, Lancashire, England. He studied music and composition at the University of Wales, under Welsh composer William Mathias, and later in The Netherlands under Louis Andriessen and in 1989 was awarded a PhD in composition. Since 1993 he has taught at the University of Bristol, where he is Head of Music and Professor of Composition and Applied Musicology. John Pickard is also conductor of the University of Bristol Symphony Orchestra and Choral Society.Pickard has composed a number of critically well-received orchestral and instrumental works, among them four symphonies and a number of symphonic works, including perhaps his best-known piece, The Flight of Icarus, which the San Francisco Chronicle called "a translucent and achingly lovely memorial to the fallen Icarus... a serious contender for the most exciting musical premiere of 2006." His orchestral writing has been highly praised: in March 2008 The Times commented that "his orchestral mastery is total." while, in April 2008 The Guardian described his music as "at its best virtuosically effective, in a style that never seems either self-consciously conservative or too stubbornly middle-of-the-road." He has also composed a piano concerto, a Trombone Concerto The Spindle of Necessity, recorded by Christian Lindberg and five string quartets. The Strad stated that the fourth quartet was "one of the best pieces of British chamber music to be heard for years", while Tempo, reviewing a recording of his quartets nos. 2, 3 and 4 offered the opinion that "if Pickard were never to write another quartet in his life, his place among the greats is secure".John Pickard is also the General Editor of the Elgar Complete Edition.
