Miroslav Miletič was born in Sisak in 1925. He studied music at the Academy of Music in Zagreb – violin with Stjepan Šulek and Ivan Pinkova, chamber music with Antonio Janigro, and composition with Branimir Sakac. He enrolled in postgraduate studies in viola (Ladislav Cerny), composition (Pavel Borkovec), acoustics and new music aesthetics (Alois Haba) in Prague. He got an insight into the basics of electronic music in Darmstadt and Utrecht, and ha also attended a conducting course (Lovro Matačič). He scored a great success  as a composer in Hilversum at the première of Concerto for viola and orchestra (1958), and his works have had numerous performances (such as Dance for solo violin, Sonatina  for violin and guitar, A Croatian Suite for guitar, Concerto for guitar and orchestra). Apart from chamber, orchestral and solo music, he also composes ballet, musical and stage works (Hasanaginica, Caroline of Suhodol, Turks under Sisak) as well as music for television and film. He was a member of the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra and the Croatian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra. As a soloist he has performed and recorded with numerous orchestras in Croatia and abroad. He founded the string quartet “Pro Arte” with which he has been playing very successfully for the past thirty years. He has also been involved in pedagogical activities. The two referential point of Miletič’s long music career have been composition and performance, which gave shape to his view of music. He has studied folklore and expressive quality of classical musical forms as well as their use in the contemporary musical expression. His compositions, specially opuses of chamber music, attract the attention due to their simplicity and communicative quality, which is one of the reasons for their performance. His works have been published by Schott, Bärenreiter, Bèrben, Pizzicato Verlag Helvetia and Ars Croatica. The cultural event “The Days of Music by Miroslav Miletič was founded in 2001 and it has been held annually in his home town of Sisak.
