"The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between." - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Vlaams Radiokoor

The sound universe of Belgian composer Robert Groslot fuses AngloSaxon, Germanic and Latin elements into a new and highly malleable language, building upon the achievements of the great composers of the Western heritage. Form virtuosity, sound refinement, wittiness, ‘rediscovered’ tonality and rhythmical adventure are the keystones of the music of Robert Groslot. He often draws inspiration from other art forms, especially poetry and painting. As a composer, Robert Groslot was largely self-taught. His broad experience with the big repertoire works, both as a concert pianist and as a conductor, became the perfect breeding ground for his composing philosophy. Resulting in a distinctively coloured and rhythmically challenging writing, his chamber music has been referred to as ‘oxygen during practice and adrenaline during performance’.
