Dora Pejačević

Dora Pejačević zauzima istaknuto mjesto u hrvatskoj kulturi. Bila je prva hrvatska skladateljica, a njezin je rad prihvaćen i izvan granica Hrvatske. O svojem je stvaralaštvu Dora napisala:

Zapravo sam samo tjelesno ovdje, sve što u sebi osjećam kao življenje i doživljavanje lebdi iznad prisutnoga i vidljivoga i u nekoj dubokoj i lijepoj beskonačnosti vidim u zrcalu svoga osjećanja pokretačke snage u liku ljubljenih bića i tisuće sjećanja izranja poput vodencvjetova na glatkoj površini jezera. U tu beskonačnost osjećaje slijede i misli i tamo promišljam svoje najbolje, jer sve što je dobro i veliko izrasta iz ljubavi. Odlebdjevši u taj najnevidljiviji svijet najosobnije unutarnjosti, postajem tek tada posvema svoje Ja, i to Ja, koje se tada u toj nebeski dalekoj skrovitosti osjeća previše ispunjeno sobom samim, traži izraz, traži odterećenje od toga visokog duševnog pritiska, koji je sam po sebi neka vrsta oduševljenja -€“ i to se oslobođenje ostvaruje kada nastaje skladba!

The grave of Dora Pejačević in Našice.




Dora Pejačević

In keeping with her own wishes, Dora was buried outside of the family crypt (mausoleum). The bust Tuga (Sadness) dates from 1906 and was the work of the Serbian sculptor Đorđe Jovanović:





The original is kept in the composer's room in the castle, just as it ws during her lifetime, and the sculpture at the grave is a copy. Data about the composer's life is given in Latin on the back of the gravestone, while only DORA is inscribed on the front with the phrase Ruhe nun (i.e., Rest now, in German) from the song The Loneliest from her late work Three Tunes Op. 53, to F. Nietzsche's verses.
