The Serbian composer, conductor and university lecturer Marko Tajčević, who died in 1984, was one of the leading personalities in Yugoslavian musical life after 1945. His works are typically conceived for piano, and many inspired by the folk music of his nation. This also includes the 13 pieces of this volume, which skillfully transpose the traditional songs from the region between the rivers Drau and Mur in northern Croatia, and transform them into delightful little pieces.
