Barry Cockcroft (b.1972) is regarded as one of Australia's finest
saxophonists and his innovative compositions are performed
throughout the world.
He studied in Australia with Dr. Peter Clinch and in Bordeaux, France, with saxophonists Jacques Net, Marie-Bernadette Charrier and Jean-Marie Londeix. He has completed long-term residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada and received regular support from the Australia Council for the Arts.
He has over 140 published works, available from Reed Music. He has acted as a repertoire consultant on Australian music and is a member of the International Saxophone Committee, supporting the triennial World Saxophone Congress. Barry Cockcroft has written several pedagogical books that continue to guide the development of thousands of young Australian musicians every year.
Captivating, quirkily humorous and technically demanding, Cockcroft's compositions have seen successful adoption into mainstream saxophone literature. His music successfully integrates contemporary saxophone techniques into well-known genres, structures and rhythms. The combination of familiar sounds with new ideas has allowed audiences worldwide to enjoy and understand his music.
His close association with over 100 composers has led to the publication of more than 1,000 new works over the past 16 years.
Barry Cockcroft's scores are available from Reed Music.
