Jakov Gotovac. Choral Music from Croatia

Choral music by Croatian composer Jakov Gotovac, presented by Catriona Young.

Catriona Young presents a concert by the acclaimed Croatian Radio-Television Chorus dedicated to the music of Jakov Gotovac, born in Split in 1895. At his height in the 1930s he wrote Croatia's most popular opera "Ero the Joker", but throughout his life brought his folk sensibilities to all sorts of music, including these choral pieces.
