Il est bien sur dirigé par Adnane Matrone ce 21 Mars 2009 a Casablanca.


 
Vuprem oèi is a very tender and poetic Croatian folk song from the region of Meðimurje on the north of Croatia. Its simple melody follows a pentatonic pattern, so typical for this part of Croatia. We express our deep gratitude to Professor Kre¹imir Veseliæ, distinguished Croatian mathematician, who informed us about popularity of this song in France. We also owe our sincere gratitude to numerous French choirs and their conductors for their exceptional perfomances. Moreover, they sing this song in Croatian! This song is a jewel of the European cultural landscape.

It would be of interest to know from when and how Vuprem oèi became known in France.

There is another Croatian tune, U Boj, from the opera Nikola ©ubiæ Zrinski composed by Ivan pl. Zajc in the 19th century, which became surprisingly poupular in Japan already since 1919!

As we see, true music does not know of borders, despite cultural differences and language difficulties.

Vuprem oèi
Traduction du Croate:

Quand vers la voˆute du ciel je l`eve les yeux,
je la vois ´etincellante d’etoiles.

Medjimorje, comme tu est verte et belle
quand tu m’apparais dans ta parure des fleurs!
(Medjimorje est une r´egion de Croatie)

Translation from Croatian:

When I look at the vault of the sky,
i see a glittering of stars.

Medjimorje, how green and beautifull you are
when you appear in a finery of flowers!

(Medjimorje is a region of Croatia)

Vertaling:

Als ik naar de hemel kijk,
dan zie ik een schittering van sterren.

Medjimorje, hoe groen en hoe mooi ben je
als je je toont in een bed van bloemen.

(Medjimorje is een streek van Kroatie)
