The Pilgrim Forest comprises ten original pieces for solo guitar. While each piece is complete by itself, the entire hour of music can also be heard as a unified work, a tale of discovery in a metaphorical forest whose language is music. The State (Columbia, SC) selected it as one of the top ten classical releases of 2000 and praised it as "a journey through a new geography... Berg conveys an exultant yet subtle control of this music... his performance is nothing less than radiant and compelling." The Soundboard, the journal of the Guitar Foundation of America, wrote "Berg's performance is beautiful. His sound, his sense of progression, and level of artistic intensity are compelling."
Sheet music for the pieces in The Pilgrim Forest will be available for purchase sometime in 2014-2015.
