Version 3

Dezider Ursiny (IPA: [‘deʒo ‘ʊrsini]) (4 October 1947 - 2 May 1995) was a Slovak rock musician and a television and film dramaturge and director. He is considered one of the most important personalities of Slovak rock music and one of the most talented and unique Slovak popular music composers. He belongs to the wide group of the legends of Czechoslovak Big Beat.[1] He was a member of now legendary big beat bands The Beatmen, The Soulmen in the 1960s and since the mid-1970s, until his death he had pursued a solo-career, composing music artistically very sophisticated and critically highly praised, which varies slightly from one album to another and is sometimes hard to define, but it is generally referred to as jazz rock, or more widely - progressive rock. He composed music to several films, including the popular musical “Neberte nám princeznú” and also shot a few documentary movies during his lifetime.
