The portrait of composer Svetozár Stračina pays tribute to an extraordinary creative force who has left behind a vast, significant musical legacy. He was an extraordinary artist who stands out from any “folder”. A boheme who perceived inherently and cultivated the authentic folklore. A composer whose creations inspire also those who avoid folklore. Stračina not only substantially contributed to the ethnomusicological repertoire, he helped create an enormous amount of legendary film music, whose originality stands up to the test of time.
