John Pitts is a British composer and teacher living in Bristol. He studied at Bristol and Manchester Universities, and composes mostly chamber music, especially for piano solo/duet/duo/triet – stylistically melodic, motoric, motif-driven, folk-inspired, jazz-tinged, post-minimal impressionism. His virtuosic pieces for two pianists (7 Piano Duets& Triets inspired by music from around the world and Gaelic Faram Jig in Kiev) have been performed at concerts, competitions and festivals in ten European countries, plus Armenia, Australia, Russia, Ukraine and the USA, including in 2015 a concert dedicated to his music in Perpignan Conservatoire's Festival Prospective 22ème siècle. His Piano Quartet won the 2003 Philharmonia Orchestra MMSF Composition Prize at the Royal Festival Hall. His 2009 album Intensely Pleasant Music: 7 Airs & Fantasias and other piano music, performed by Bristol's Steven Kings, received “delicious” reviews. In 2016 John completed an unusual 258-page book How to Play Indian Sitar Raags on a Piano for adventurous pianists - see Secretary of Severnside Composers Alliance (2003-2015); Associate Conductor of Bristol Millennium Orchestra (2010-2016).
