Product details

Franjio Ksaver Kuhac (1834-1911), regarded as the founder of Croatian ethnomusicology, notated over 2,000 traditional songs, resulting in the publication of five volumes of South Slavic national songs in Zagreb between 1878 and 1881, and the dissemination of this repertoire to generations of musicians and scholars. The quotation of 'Cvit mi je u gori' within the work 'La flor en la colina' or 'The Flower on the Hill' pays tribute to this great scholar and the city of Zagreb, which has "enhanced our civilization through its contribution to music, culture and history", at the same time attempting to make a contemporary contribution to the preservation of traditional Croatian folk melodies. The melody was transcribed from a recording produced by Hrvatski Radio (Croatian National Radio) in 1983, which was adapted by Dinko Fio, and performed by the Ošjak klapa singers from Vela Luka (Island of Korcula). Stylistically, the melody belongs to the Dalmatian klapsko pjevanje or 'klapa singing' tradition, which may be described as multi-part harmonic songs from the central and southern Adriatic region of Croatia, usually in a major key, and performed by a male group of singers from four to eight strong.
