181 Arthur Berger, Composer and Music Critic, Is Dead at 91

Arthur Berger, an American composer whose rugged, economically scored music straddles Neo-Classicism and Serialism, and who established a sideline career as a thoughtful writer and critic, died on Tuesday at a hospital in Boston. He was 91 and lived in Cambridge, Mass.

Mr. Berger was part of the wave of Paris-trained composers whose work helped establish a contemporary American style in the 1940's -- one that, in the spirit of American culture, morphed to accommodate new interests and techniques.

Like Aaron Copland and Virgil Thomson, with whom he was associated, Mr. Berger was fascinated in his early years by Stravinsky's music, and he adopted aspects of Stravinsky's rhythmically pointed style, as well as the textural clarity that was central to Stravinsky's Neo-Classicism.

Mr. Berger's work maintained a gritty urbanity that gave the impression of greater abstraction, and held popularity at arm's length, unlike Copland and Thomson. He magnified that distance in the late 1950's by incorporating 12-tone techniques into his music, which retained its Neo-Classical contours.

Popularity was never an issue for Mr. Berger. ''If Serialism's detractors mean that it has not become big-time box office,'' he wrote in a 1987 article in The Boston Review, ''they should be reminded that there are other audiences, not at all negligible, besides the big ones.''

Arthur Berger was born in New York on May 15, 1912. He began playing the piano when he was 11, and wrote his first compositions while in high school. Although he enrolled at City College in 1928, he did not begin his formal studies in composition until he transferred to New York University, where he completed a bachelor's degree in 1934.

He also became friendly with Copland, and joined Copland's informal Young Composer's Group.

With the composer Bernard Herrmann -- who had not yet made his name as a film-score composer -- Mr. Berger published the Musical Mercury, a magazine devoted to contemporary and traditional music. He edited the magazine for three years, while also studying composition with Walter Piston, Hugo Leichtentritt and Archibald Thompson Davison at Harvard, where he earned his master's degree in 1936.

In 1937 he moved to Paris for two years of study with Nadia Boulanger, the French theory and composition teacher who had been a crucial influence on Copland. Upon his return from Paris in 1939, Mr. Berger joined the faculty of Mills College in Oakland, Calif., where he also continued his composition studies with Darius Milhaud. He later taught at Brooklyn College, the Juilliard School, Brandeis University and the New England Conservatory, retiring from teaching in 1999.

Mr. Berger also contributed reviews to The Boston Transcript and The New York Sun in the mid-1940's, and joined Thomson as a critic at The New York Herald Tribune. In 1962 he helped found Perspectives on New Music, a scholarly publication, which he edited briefly.

His autobiography, ''Reflections of an American Composer,'' was published by the University of California Press in 2002.

Mr. Berger's musical output includes works for orchestra, solo voice and choir, but his most durable and varied compositions are for chamber ensembles and piano. His first major work, the Quartet for Winds (1941) -- a lively Neo-Classical piece dedicated to Copland -- is still performed regularly. A series of duos -- for violin and piano (1948), cello and piano (1951) and oboe and clarinet (1952) -- continue to sound vital and fresh, and there is much power and beauty in his piano music.

He is survived by his wife, Ellen.

189 As told by Ellen Heymann.
As a child of 5 or 6 Harry had a bad sledding accident, where he received a serious brain injury. As a result he suffered seizures. Medical people of those days though he was retarded. But infact just the oppisite was true. He was overly intelligent.
The family had him placed in an institutioal facility. He escaped. He was then put into facility in Bangor. He escaped again with another inmate. They both tried to swim across the Penobscotriver, but both individuals drowned in the process.
Ellen remembers meeting him once. He was wearing strange looking glasses and just stared at her.
She also attended the funeral, where he was burried in the old cemetery section in Bangor.
