In this article we present a nice video prepared by Yoko Nishii (Ise, Japan), dedicated to the 135th anniversary of the birth of Dora Pejačević (on the photo), the first Croatian woman composer of international reputation. In this video, Yoko plays Pejačević's "Chanson sans paroles" in C Major Op. 5 (Song without words), accompanied with lovely sceneries from the town of Našice, where Dora was living, and where Yoko already had several pianist concerts. Yoko Nishii had nearly fifty soloist concerts in as many as 24 Croatian cities and towns. We should also stress that she speaks Croatian.
