Title: Sixtove sláčikové kvartetá v kontexte premien žánru a notácie v druhej polovici 20. storočia
Author: Peter Javorka

Abstract: Jozef Sixta’s String Quartets in the Context of the Genre and Notation Transformations in the Second Half of the 20th Century
The submitted study has focused on the exploration of the numerous parallels of Jozef Sixta’s work with the international music of the time. In particular we use comparisons and delineate similarities of Sixta’s two string quartets (1965, 1984) and the works of composers whose quartets originated approximately in the same era and have similar features. The focus of the study is aleatoric notation for a string quartet – a comparison of an exhaustive and approximate notation and the question of the internal communication within the string quartet medium. Jozef Sixta wrote his First String Quartet in 1965 using aleatoric notation; in 1960s such notation was adopted by many composers all over the world. The essay offers a comparative view on string quartets by Witold Lutosławski, Luciano Berio, Sergey Slonimsky and many others. Studying Sixta’s Second String Quartet from 1984 we find many parallels with tradition (Béla Bartók’s string quartets). Apart from verbal descriptions the study also incorporates excerpts from notations and many scholarly quotations from already published articles concerning the issue, as well as excerpts from the mentioned scores.
