Klatzow wins top music award

30 October 2014

Peter Klatzow has won the Helgaard Steyn Award for the second time in 20 years. Dedicated to promoting artistry, the Helgaard Steyn Award of R500 000 is one of the most-valued art prizes in South Africa and was awarded for Klatzow's work, LIGHTSCAPES for marimba and small ensemble.

The work impressed adjudicators with its "various harmonic layers in a multi-tonal language ... The sound-world Klatzow created was fresh and 'magical'."

He first won the award in 1994 for his piano work From the Poets.
