Title: Roman Berger, skladateľ
Author: Lucia Jakubisová

Abstract: Roman Berger (1930) is a member of the Slovak composers’ generation who disregarding unfavourable surroundings and difficult conditions in the 1960s asserted the ideas and creative goals surpassing the official norms in the starting points and results of domestic compositional activities, thus moulding the period character of the so-called Slovak avant-garde music. The concentrated view on the figure of the composer Roman Berger reflects the author’s own compositional activity through analyses of particular compositions and examination of the intention of his musical utterance directed ad Sacrum, what Berger emphasizes by a significant selection of music devices and tone material (accent on sound, mind, rhythmic-metric pulsation, expression and semantics) in his individual creative phases. The composition of classical music – music of protest, lament or hope – became organic part of Berger’s musical mind. Through his music he aims at a “solution” and “interpretation” of the world problems. This is the context in which the synthesis of Berger’s compositional language and philosophical thinking should be perceived.
