Jean Barraqué (b. January 17, 1928; d. August 17, 1973) was a French composer who studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Jean Langlais and Olivier Messiaen. The main influences, in his music were serialism and musique concrète, but his output was so small and varied as to resist stylistic classification.
A total of six mature works survive. The early Piano Sonata (1952) and Séquence for soprano, piano and ensemble (1955) are standalone works, large in both scale and scope. His later works are all commentaries on the Hermann Broch novel The Death of Virgil. They include …au delà du hasard for ensembles of voices and instruments (1959); Chant après chant for soprano, piano and percussion (1966); Le temps restitué for soprano, chorus and orchestra (1968); and the Concerto for clarinet, vibraphone and six trios (1968).
