Ladies and gentlemen,

the life of many great Croats

was difficult, bleak and woeful.

Today, as we listen to the immortal

music composed by the great Lisinski,

and as we sense the

magnitude of his creation,

we will also take a look back

at the last 13 years of his life;

years he spent misunderstood

by his colleagues and companions.

Our story begins in 1841.

At this time, Lisinski was an unpaid

trainee in a government office.

Hello, my friend. It is

a good thing you're home.

Hello, triga. What happened?

I am all out of breath.

Big things, big events,

my dear Lisinski.

Gaj is coming to Zagreb,

our great Croat, great patriot,

and the Croatian youth

will prepare a fitting welcome.

Excellent, triga. But,

what shall we do, and how?

Listen, Nacek. Enough

of pushing these papers,

do you really think

this is the job for you?

Will youalways be some lowly clerk?

- But, Striga, what are you doing?

Listen to me.

You have a tremendous musical talent, it

has to be expressed to the Croatian people.

Now you should seriously get to work on

it. - It is not that simple, my dear Striga.

It is just that simple...

- You see, my friend...

Listen, I guarantee

that we will break through.

Demeter wrote a poem

in honor of Gaj's arrival in Zagreb,

and you will set that poem

to music. - But Striga...

Listen to it:

"Free is the bird that soars through the sky,

free is the beast that roams the mountain;

why then should I let these chains bind be,

why should a foreigner walk over me"

What do you think...

these words, this thought?

Let me see.

"He who would not sooner die,

has not our blood in his veins"

You will set this poem to music, and

it will be the first Croatian patriotic song.

Yes, you are right,

but I dare not do such a thing.

You see, dear triga, I have never

composed anything for the public

and I am afraid I'm not worthy of it.

True, music is my whole world,

but for such a ceremonial occasion...

Vatroslav, you will write this song,

you are born to be an artist.

triga, triga, you are a dreamer,

but I will try it anyway.

You must, Vatroslav, you must.

We will create great works together.

But now I leave you to your muses.

Pull together, Lisinski,

now is the moment

to show the world what the

Croatian youth is capable of.

Goodbye, friend.

- Goodbye, Striga.

Bravo! Excellent! Bravo!

My deepest bows, our splendid

countess. - Good evening, Striga.

My apologies for interrupting
