Australian Composer

Newly completed: Forlana (piano forte), to extend the collection of dances (Minuet & Courante) composed last year.

Earlier this year, Cochran also published Prelude No. 11, and completed the monumental Pegasus' Travels Part V.

Cochran also recently recorded Pegasus' Travels Part V with the recording available on YouTube.

During the rest of 2019, Julian intends to compose new piano works, plus a work for piano and orchestra.

Some notes by Julian Cochran about the five-part Pegasus' Travels follows:

".. one may consider in isolation the inherent appearance and capacities of this beautiful creature. Pegasus thus exudes unbounded freedom as it passes across borders, perhaps not even aware of them, at great speed; and overcoming of the herd-loving characteristics of its horse-cousins, Pegasus prefers to be away from crowds and takes pleasure in its isolation and independence. But it shares the caprice and life-long playfulness of its horse-cousins; and combining magnificent elegance, unending strength – the stallion is not light but appears so only from the vast wing-strength – and timeliness grace, classical ballet can only strive to reach what is inherent and natural for this majestic  creature."
