Composition

Andrea studied composition at Rhodes University under Pieter Louis van Dijk (classical composition) and John Edwards (jazz orchestration). She has composed music for solo euphonium, brass band, brass ensemble and orchestra. These works have been performed in the USA, the UK, Singapore, Germany, Norway and South Africa.

She recently had her proposal grant for 12 play – a – long compositions for brass instruments accepted by the Kulturstiftung des Freistaats Thüringen, Germany. These will be produced this year and published under the shop page.

Below are recordings of some of the works that have been performed and recorded.   

Andrea works on a commission basis so most of the pieces have been scored as per the preference of the performer. You can contact her if you need any of her works rescored for bass clef or treble clef.

News: Jennifer Oliverio will be releasing her CD Enigma including “Silver-backed Fox” by Andrea. This was composed for Jennifer and is Andrea’s first Flugelhorn composition. More information can be found here: https://www.jenniferoliverio.com/news
