ג'והן בוסטוק

John Bostock (b.1954) composes concert music and music for Dance and also performs as a jazz musician. His music has been performed in Australia and Israel by such ensembles as the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Musica Nova Consort, the Israel Contemporary String Quartet, and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. Bostock has twice been the recipient of the “Golden Feather” Prize from ACUM the Society of Authors, Composers and Music Publishers in Israel. In 1996 his work: In Memoriam for Symphony Orchestra, was among the three final compositions performed by Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in a competition honouring the 60th birthday of the orchestra. In October, 2004 he graduated with a Ph.D in Compostion from the University of Sydney after studying with Arie Shapira (Israel) and Anne Boyd (Sydney, Australia). He had previously studied composition with Leon Schidlowsky (Israel) and Ross Edwards (Sydney). Among his teachers in the world of jazz piano were Hal Galper (New York) and Roger Frampton (Sydney) and Don Sebesky (New York) with whom he studied ‘Contemporary Writing and Arranging’. In 2002 he was the recipient of a grant which enabled him to release the CD “Works 1993 – 2001’. His works have been recorded by the Voice of Music station on Israeli radio, where his compositions have been broadcast regularly. His works are published by the Israel Music Institute and the Israel Music Centre and are available from the Australian Music Centre library. “Bostock's works are the opposite of postcards: sketches of feelings and emotions, based on patient observation and profound attentiveness.” Ben Shalev – Ha’Aretz.
