CT. Filip Kormuth will be performing virtuoso pieces from the grand classical piano repertoire - Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt as well as his own compositions on Tuesday 26 April starting at 6.30pm at 14 Village Road, Kloof.

Ct. Flip Kormuth was born in Prague in 1981 to a Slovak family. Having grown up in South Africa, he feels South Africa is his home.

After moving to South Africa in 1993, Ct. Filip has recommenced his formal training in music with his enrollment to Natal University (2000) where he obtained his Masters in Piano performance (2006) and where he was a lecturer of piano, keyboard studies and music history until theend of 2012. Apart from his Master’s degree, Ct. Filip also holds the internationally recognised Performance Licentiate from Unisa which he was awarded at 2006.

Ct. Filip holds the post of curriculum developer for the Unisa undergraduate courses in composition ad music theory.

As a composer, Ct. Filip's music is rooted in tonal idioms ranging from medieval and folklore modes, to classical and modern tonalities. His style of composition borders between romantic and expressionistic, but his philosophical approach to his art is firmly rooted in east European expressionism. Some of his biggest influences were that of Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Bartok, and Ocenas. Ct. Filip believes in the technical and methodical approach to composition and is currently working on a PhD thesis in this field. He has a substantial library on the topic of compositions, theory and orchestration and believes that music is, first and foremost, a highly complex language which needs to be fully understood and practically grasped.

Ct. Filips compositional output is truly extensive for having rather short carrier as a composer, and encompasses solo, chamber, orchestral and vocal music

Tickets for the performance will be sold at the door at R100 per person. The concert will run for 70 minutes. Please make reservation should one wish to have dinner afterwards at the restaurant. - Supplied.
