Biography

Robert Fokkens is a South African composer based in the UK. His music is performed and broadcast internationally, and is published by Composers Edition and Tetractys Publishing. His music is recorded on Nimbus, Metier, Herald and other labels.
The Times described Robert’s music as having its ‘own engaging quirkiness’. It works across boundaries of genre, style and nationality, using techniques and materials learned from traditional South African and other African musics, alongside influences from an array of musical worlds, creating music of twisted cycles and microtonal inflections described as ‘hilarious’, ‘sad [and] strange...express[ing] more than anything else they played’ (Times). He writes chamber, orchestral and vocal music - in both concert and dramatic contexts. Elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in 2014 for making a “significant contribution to the music profession”, Robert is Senior Lecturer in composition and directs the Contemporary Music Group at Cardiff University.
