According to maestro Krešimir Marmilić, the photo was very probably taken in Sisak,
on the occasion of the first public concert of young Franjo Krežma.
The following year, at the age of nine, he inscribed the Conservatory of Vienna,
as the youngest student ever (which he completed at the age of 13).


About 100 of his pieces have been discovered by Krešimir Marmilić in Zagreb in 1996!


FRANJO KREŽMA (1862-1881)

Najzahtjevnije od svih glazbala -€“ violina, najnedokučivije od svih ljudskih sposobnosti - genijalnost, ono što najbrže prati sve ljude -€“ zaborav, i kadšto, prava privilegija -€“ vlastiti grob. Sve to je Franjo Krežma. Zaboravljeni genijalni glazbenik, violinist, skladatelj. Toliko zaboravljen da je u domovini Hrvatskoj znan rijetkima, a u svijetu tek ponekom proučavatelju glazbenog života Europe druge polovice 19. stoljeća.

Rođen je u Osijeku 1862. godine.

Vrlo rano uočena je njegova velika nadarenost. Njegov otac, i sam veliki ljubitelj glazbe, omogućio mu je, ne žaleći obiteljskog imetka, najbolje učitelje, najvrsnije škole, primjerene uvjete.

Prvi učitelj mu je bio Đuro Eishenhut, zagrebački učitelj violine. Nakon prvog predstavljanja na velikom koncertu u kazalištu na Markovom trgu u Zagrebu, dobio je, od glavnog tajnika Bečkog konzervatorija, zajedno sa sestrom, koja ga je pratila na klaviru, poziv na studij. Svi koji su ga slušali, bili su zapanjeni sviranjem tog djeteta. U Bečki konzervatorij stupio je kao devetogodišnjak, kao najmlađi student ovog konzervatorija ikad! Na studiju se Krežma ističe i dobiva prve nagrade na završnim semestima. Tu uči i skladanje. Studentske dane završio je na početku puberteta, s 13 godina.

Nakon toga, započeo je spektakularnu karijeru diljem Europe. Kao šesnaestogodišnjaka obožavala ga je koncertna publika u Rimu, Pragu, Veneciji, Genovi i Parizu. Kritičari su ukazivali na ljepotu njegova zvuka i fenomenalnu interpretaciju a jedan je zapisao: "anatomija genija, uzaludan je posao!"

U Italiji je dobio čast zasvirati na Paganinijevoj violini, a sa 17 godina postao je koncertnim majstorom u berlinskom Kraljevskom orkestru (današnja Berlinska filharmonija).

Cijenili su ga brojni slavni umjetnici poput Giuseppea Verdija i Franza Liszta (s Lisztom je u jednoj prilici navodno i svirao). Skladao je jednu simfoniju, koncert za violinu i orkestar, nekoliko marševa i plesova za orkestar, Offertorium, tri uvertire, mnoštvo solo popjevaka, djela za violinu i klavir, gudački kvartet,.. Svi su se slagali kako će, za života, Krežma nadmašiti svog uzora, Paganinija. Nažalost, smrt je spriječila ostvarenje još veće karijere i stvaranje još veće legende. Franjo Krežma preminuo je kao 19-godišnjak, u Njemačkoj, 5. lipnja 1881.

Ispraćen je riječima njegovog suvremenika: "On nam je samo pred očima proletio. Neima ga više. Bio je to samo san, povratak zlatnom glazbenom dobu, odlomak djetinjstva, Mozarta, Beethovena."

Iza sebe je ostavio preko 100 skladanih djela od kojih su većina bila izgubljena pa ponovno otkrivena u ostavštini Krežminih nasljednika. Iz popisa ponovno otkrivenih djela 1997. godine, nalaze se većinom i skladbe s ovog nosača zvuka. Zasluga je to dugogodišnjeg istraživanja violinista Krešimira Marmilića, koji neumorno pokušava revitalizirati skladateljsku građu Franje Krežme.

FRANJO KREŽMA (1862-1881)

The most demanding of all the instruments - the violin, the least tangible of all human abilities - the genius, the thing tracks all people the fastest - oblivion, and sometimes, the real privilege - your own grave. All this is Franjo Krežma. A forgotten genius musician, a violinist, a composer. He has been forgotten so only a few people in Croatia, his own homeland, have heard about him, and in the world, only the people who study the European music life of the second half of the 19th century have known him.

He was born in 1862 in Osijek.

His great talent was noticed very early. His father, a great music lover, enabled him the best teachers, the most prestigious schools, the appropriate conditions, investing the family wealth with no regrets.

His first teacher was Đuro Eishenhut, a Zagreb violin teacher. After his first appearance at the concert in the theater at the Marko's Square in Zagreb, he received the invitation from the Secretary General of the Vienna Conservatory to come to study there, together with his sister, the pianist. His playing astonished everyone who listened to him. He entered the Vienna Conservatory as nine-years-old boy, and was the youngest student of this Conservatory ever! Krežma was an excellent student and got the first prizes at the end of the semesters. He also learnt composing there. He ended his student days at the beginning of puberty, at the age of 13.
He began the spectacular concert career all over Europe. When he was sixteen, a concert audience in Rome, Prague, Venice, Geneva and Paris already adored him. The critics pointed to the beauty of his sound and a phenomenal interpretation, and one wrote: "Anatomy of the genius is futile work!"

In Italy, he was honored to play on Paganini's violin, and at age 17, he became a concertmaster at the Berlin Royal Orchestra (today's Berlin Philharmonic).

He was respected by many famous artists such as Giuseppe Verdi and Franz Liszt (he played with Liszt in one occasion). He composed a symphony, a concert for the violin and the orchestra, several marchers and dances for the orchestra, Offertorium, three overtures, numerous solo compositions, violin and piano works, pieces for string quartets,.. Everyone agreed that during his life, he would surpass his role model, Paganini. Unfortunately, death, once more, stopped the achievement of even greater career and creating of even greater legend. Franjo Krežma died at 19, on June 5, 1881 in Germany.

Krežma's contemporary described him in these words: "He just flew in front of our eyes. He just disappeared. He was just a dream, a return of the golden age, a fragment of childhood, a part of Mozart, Beethoven."

He left over 100 compositions; most of them were lost and re-discovered in Krežma's legacy. The great part of his re-discovered works in 1997, you can listen to on this CD. This is the result of a longstanding research and efforts made by the violinist Krešimir Marmilić, who tries tirelessly to revitalize Franjo Krežma's works.

YOKO NISHII about her discovery of Franjo Krežma

The first time when I got interested in Franjo Krezma was summer 2013 when I went to Croatia for several concerts. I visited Osijek for sightseeing and there came across his statue about which I had no idea who it was and received the score of his beautiful composition "Evening's song" for a solo violin and string quartet. I got two sets of scores and I donated one of them to the library of Aichi University of the Arts where I'm working now. I wish that our students would perform it some day!

Novogodišnja poruka veleposlanika

Sretna Nova godina. Na početku ove nove godine dozvolite mi da uputim novogodišnje pozdrave. Ova 2018. godina je važna za Japan i Hrvatsku. Hrvatska je 1991. godine proglasila neovisnost. Godinu nakon toga Japana je priznao Hrvatsku kao neovisnu državu, a u ožujku 1993. godine Japan i Hrvatska uspostvili su diplomatske odnose. Ove godine obilježavamo 25. obljetnicu odnosa između dvije zemlje. Ova 2018. godina bit će prilika da se osvrnemo na proteklih 25 godina tijekom kojih su ojačane veze dviju zemalja. Zato u sljedećoj godini planiramo mnogo događanja kojima ćemo obilježiti tu obljetnicu, kroz suradnju Veleposlanstva Japana u Hrvatskoj, Veleposlanstvo Hrvatske u Tokiju, kao i kroz razumijevanje i potporu mnogih osoba povezanih s Japanom i Hrvatskom.

Marko Polo, koji je rođen na otoku Korčuli, u svojoj Knjizi o čudima svijeta predstavio je Japan kao Zemlju zlata. U ono vrijeme Japan se tako nazivao radi velike proizvodnje zlata. U današnje vrijeme Japan je zemlja bogate kulture, miroljubivog društva, živog i jakog gospodarstva, i želja mi je da kroz događanja koja nam predstoje u nadolazećoj godini Hrvatska ponovno otkrije Japan kao suvremenu verziju "Zemlje zlata"€œ.

Kako bismo obilježili 25. obljetnicu odnosa dvije zemlje, u veleposlanstvu smo za to pripremili i logotip.

Ovaj logotip počiva na licitaru, hrvatskom običaju koji je registriran i kao dio nematerijalne kulturne baštine UNESCO-a. Licitarsko srce s malim ogledalom ustvari nosi poruku koja kaže "€žTi si zauvijek u mojem srcu"€œ, tj. osoba kojoj je licitar poklonjen uvijek vidi sebe u srcu onoga tko joj je licitar poklonio. Stoga ovaj logotip predstavlja Japan i sve njegove želje i snove koji se odražavaju u srcima stanovnika Hrvatske.

Što se tiče događanja i projekata kroz nadolazeću godinu, redovno ćemo ih najavljivati na ovim našim stranicama. Želja mi je da nam se na tim događanjima pridružiti što veći broj stanovnika Hrvatske, ali i Japanaca koji ovdje žive. Zato svakako dođite ako budete u prilici!

Ovime započinjemo važnu godinu za Japan i Hrvatsku. Uz potporu svih vas osoblje veleposlanstva radit će na daljnjem jačanju veza između Japana i Hrvatske.
