- Melita Milin
(b Split, 3 May 1935). Serbian composer. She studied composition with Rajičić at the Belgrade Academy of Music (graduation, 1964) and later studied with Messiaen and Boulanger in Paris (1967–8). She was appointed professor of theory at Belgrade, and has published essays on harmony and counterpoint as well as analytical studies of works by 20th-century Serbian composers. Her early compositions include neo-Baroque features, though their atonal language is also to some extent Expressionist. Later works, such as Zaboravljeni kontrapunkt (‘Forgotten Counterpoint’, 1980), show a greater economy of means and speak more directly.
