MUSIC

There are various sound clips and videos available online of Pieter Bezuidenhout's music. Here are some highlights. 

AULA

The word AULA (aʊlə) refers to a large space where people can congregate or meet and is frequently used for concerts, ceremonies and performances. In giving this album the title AULA, it becomes a metaphor that represents the concert space where these works exist in. This AULA becomes a space where you don't come to listen to these works but where they are performed for you.

 

"This story of this album has been in the making for the last 10 years. Included on this album are some of the most beloved works that I have composed over the span of the last decade. Including works for solo instruments, solo voice works adapted from stage and chamber music productions."
