Retired UCT professor of composition Peter Klatzow has received the prestigious Huberte Rupert Prize from the South African Academy of Arts and Sciences. The award, established in 2006, was made in recognition of Klatzow's lifetime contribution to music, both as a composer and for his activities in promoting other South African composers through the media of print and recording.

"The SA Academy of Arts and Sciences has a long and solid reputation of rewarding high achievement, and I am particularly delighted to follow in the footsteps of Arnold van Wyk and Hubert du Plessis, both of whom taught at UCT and developed distinguished careers as composers," Klatzow commented.

Klatzow's many other accolades include a Nederberg award for his music for the ballet Hamlet, and the Molteno Gold Medal presented to him by the Cape Tercentenary Foundation for a lifetime achievement in music.
