Peter Klatzow was appointed to the University of Cape Town in 1973, where he is presently Professor in Composition. In 1986 he was elected a Fellow of the University of Cape Town for having performed original distinguished academic work of such quality as to merit special recognition.
He is one of the few South African composers to achieve international recognition, winning prizes in Spain and Toronto; his works have been performed in various European centres and in the United States.

Commotio was formed in August 1999 with the aim of providing a refreshing alternative to both singers and audiences alike through the performance of lesser-known repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Through Commotio, Matthew Berry enthusiastically promotes the work of a younger generation of composers, and little-known compositions from more established writers: a combination which is represented in this recording.
