CD is dedicated to professor Blaženka Zorić

Matija Dedić came across music composed by Dora Pejačević (Našice, 10 September 1885 - Munich, 5 March 1923) – Croatian composer whose “work concurred with the modernist movement in Croatian literature and the secession in the visual arts” and who has, “without breaking new ground ... helped to bring a new range of expression into the traditional musical language” (Koraljka Kos)  – for the first time during his primary music education when his first piano teacher, Blaženka Zorić, to whom this CD is dedicated, pointed her music to him. This was clearly a very singular beginning of his development path, as emotionally, so “technically” too, primarily in terms of bold harmony colors which have led him towards Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett. As he says himself, he has thought of Dora Pejačević as a forerunner of such harmonies, especially in “white” or “eurojazz”.

... However, there is no doubt that music on this album would never have existed if for Dora Pejačević’s opus does not exist! Allow me to “paraphrase” the title of the symposium dedicated to Liszt: improvisation is always a new and unique creation!
