The Croatian composer and conductor (Split, 11-XI-1895 – Zagreb, 16-X-1982) Jakov Gotovac studied law at the Universities of Zagreb and Graz, and music with A. Dobronić and J. Hatz. Later, he improved his musical studies in Vienna with J. Marx. From 1923 to 1957 was the conductor of Zagreb’s Opera, where he was also active as a choirmaster: for many years he directed the choir “Mladost-Balkan”. His son Pero (Zagreb, 12-II-1927) has been working as a composer as well, mainly of folk and film music.
