Composer Robert Groslot is known for his mastery of orchestral texture as well as his distinctive colored and rhytmical challenging writing. His work catalogue includes both major orchestral pieces and chamber music.
Robert Groslot is a curious, passionate and eager witness of his time. He often finds inspiration in other art forms, expecially poetry and painting. Important works are Rainfall on Pink City, Black Venus, The Great Globe, Si le Monde… and a series of sixteen Concertos for solo instruments and orchestra.
Upon two of his orchestral works Robert Groslot also created art movies: The Great Globe, which was screened at HDFest 2006 in Los Angeles, and Si Le Monde… This second film was broadcasted hundreds of times by Belgian culture channels Exqi and Cultuur 7.
Robert Groslot started his career as a pianist. After winning the Alessandro Casagrande Competition in 1974 (Terni) and becoming laureate of the Queen Elisabeth Competition for Piano (Brussels, 1978), he undertook concert trips across 4 continents through more than 20 countries and made many studio, radio and television recordings. As the founder and conductor of Il Novecento he collaborated with top soloists both from the classical scene and the pop scene. In recent years, composing has become his main activity.
