Studies of Jacobus Kloppers’ Compositions by Others

Jacobus Kloppers’ compositions (around 75) include works sponsored by Canada Council, CBC, The Royal Canadian College of Organists, the Marjorie Young Bell Fine Arts and Music Fund at Mount Allison University, Sackville NB, the South African Foundation for the Creative Arts, churches and various private sponsors. These comprise organ solo works for liturgical and concert use, an organ concerto, alto-saxophone concerto, various anthems and choral music, two organ suites for organ duet, “Reflections” for piano solo, “Jack and the Bean Stalk” for organ and narrator, “Celtic Impressions” for organ solo, as well as a “Triptych: Carolingian Temperaments” for organ and alto-saxophone.

His music is published in Canada, United States and South Africa and a number of these appear on 11 Compact Discs (including the German “Querstand” label) or on Youtube. His music has enjoyed performances in greater Europe, North- and South America, Hong Kong and South Africa and broadcasts on CBC, SABC, Radio Netherlands, Polish Radio 2 and Minnesota Public Radio.

The “Canticle of the Sun“, for mixed chorus, brass and organ was commissioned by The Friends of the Winspear Centre, Edmonton and performed at the inaugurational gala of the Davis Concert Organ, September 14, 2002.

With a travel grant from Canada Council the composer attended the performance of his “Te Deum” for Mixed Choir, Organ and Timpani in May, 2005 by the Polish Chamber Choir (Polski Chor Kameralny;director Jan Lukaszewski) at the 15th Gaude Mater International Festival of Religious Music in Czestochowa, Poland. The performance was broadcast on Polish Radio Program 2 in August 2005.

At Polish saxophonist Dariusz Samol’s request, the organ-saxophone “Triptych: Carolingian Temperaments” was reworked, expanded and orchestrated in 2005 as a Concerto for Alto-Saxophone and Chamber Orchestra (“Concerto in Quattro Umori”). The first two movements of the concerto premiered at the 4th International Saxophone Festival in Szczecin, Poland on April 8, 2006 with soloist Dariusz Samol and the “Orkiestra Opery na Zamku” under the direction of Jacek Kraszewski, in a program called “Canada Meets Poland” sponsored by the Edmonton Composers Concert Society and the Canadian Embassy. The entire concerto (all 3 movements) received its North American premiere at the Edmonton Composers Concert Society (now called ‘New Music Edmonton’) sponsored concert “New Music Alberta 2008-09”, Convocation Hall, University of Alberta, February 15, 2009) with Charles Stolte (Alto Saxophone) and the Edmonton Chamber Players under the direction of Polish Maestro Jacek Rogala.

A complete collection (scores and recordings) of Jacobus Kloppers’ compositions is available for loan from the Odeion School of Music Library at the University of the Free State (South Africa).
