The composer, clarinet player, and professor Uroš Rojko is one of the most knowledgeable and active musicians on the Slovenian and German-speaking art music scene.
Musicologist Leon Stefanija explores the many dimensions of the life and work of this exceptional artist. He paints a detailed picture of Rojko’s artistic development, provides insights into Central European musical culture, and seeks to define the musical poetics of
Rojko’s work by citing not only Rojko himself but also his critics. Finally, on the basis of two selected compositions, he examines what makes the work and technique of this important representative of new music so special.
