GROVE, Izak. Life-in-work: Autobiography in Arnold van Wyk's music. Tydskr. geesteswet. [online]. 2008, vol.48, n.1, pp. 1-12. ISSN 2224-7912.

The essay deals with the popular question regarding meaning in the art of music, in particular in the music of the South African composer Arnold van Wyk (1916-1983). In an interview with the composer in 1982 he gave indications concerning the creative process of his piano work, Night Music (composed 1945-1958). Recent insight into sketches and letters relating to this and other works not only confirmed the composer's communications but also revealed what can be seen as indications of an autobiographical nature of the music. It can be argued that the composer reserved aspects of his inner self and his life-style to be expressed only through his music.
