Moss, Keith


After winning the SAMRO overseas scholarship in composition Keith is now recognised as one of the leading South African composers of his generation. His compositional output ranges from chamber works of varying kinds to large scale orchestral works including soloists.


He began studying composition soon after completing his degree in piano performance, however a life in the orchestral and chamber music realms forged a deep love for the understanding of the cogs and wheels inside the machine that is music.


Keith studied composition with one of the most renowned South African composers of our time, Peter Louis van Dijk and later with the former head of the South African College of Music, Peter Klatzow.


Keith's works have been performed by many ensembles and premiered extensively in South Africa including the Stockholm Saxophone Quartet, the Eastern Cape Philharmonic, the Stellenbosch International Chamber Festival, Rhodes University and Keith has conducted many premieres of his own works with his performing ensemble, The Paz Consort.
