(1937 - 1995)

Slovak composer Tadeáš Salva studied the cello, piano and accordion playing at the Žilina Conservatory and simultaneously studied composition privately with Ján Zimmer. He continued his compositional studies at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava (1958–1960). The conservative ambience of the Academy did not satisfy his artistic endeavours, however, and therefore he moved to the State College of Music in Katowice (Poland), where he graduated as a student of Bolesław Szabelski, former pupil of Karol Szymanowski and teacher of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki. Having finished his studies, Salva worked for Czechoslovak Radio Košice, and later in Czechoslovak Television in Bratislava, in SĽUK (Slovak Folk Art Ensemble), and in the Association of Slovak Composers. He also taught at the Faculty of Education of Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra. Nevertheless, composition remained the main passion and preoccupation of his whole life.
