********************************************************************
Dora Pejacevic(1885-1923) is very famous in Croatia known as the first Croatian female composer. In the changing period from the Romantic to the Modern, seeking new value of the art, she left 58 opus of which 24 were composed for piano in her 37 years' life. Lots of them were not published and sleeping for quite long time. Since I met her vocal opus "Venedig" for F. Nietzsche's poem and her beautiful piano opus "Ruza" during my study period in Croatia, I've been attracted to her and came to have impulse to know and play all her opus. This concert is held by my wish that let many people know the world of Dora Pejacevic who is still the unknown composer in Japan.

********************************************************************
Dora Pejacevic(1885-1923) is very famous in Croatia known as the first Croatian female composer. In the changing period from the Romantic to the Modern, seeking new value of the art, she left 58 opus of which 24 were composed for piano in her 37 years' life. Lots of them were not published and sleeping for quite long time. Since I met her vocal opus "Venedig" for F. Nietzsche's poem and her beautiful piano opus "Ruza" during my study period in Croatia, I've been attracted to her and came to have impulse to know and play all her opus. This concert is held by my wish that let many people know the world of Dora Pejacevic who is still the unknown composer in Japan.
