John Pickard: Chamber Music Volume Two is out now and available to buy on the Toccata Classics label. The First (1991) is cast in a huge single paragraph, 38 minutes in length, unfolding with the drama and pace of an adventure novel; the five-movement Fifth (2012–13) explores a dialectic of conflict and resolution.

Performed by Brodowski Quartet: David Brodowski, (violin), Catrin Win Morgan (violin), Felix Tanner (Viola) and Reinoud Ford (Cello).
