The first volume covers the period of Croatian music history from the beginning to the 18th century, and the second musical romanticism in Croatia with special emphasis on the works and opuses of Vatroslav Lisinski and Ivan Zajc and the "composer circles" of their contemporaries. The edition abounds in pictorial contributions and photographic material of manuscripts and old publications, as well as the covers of compositions, theoretical writings, documents and musical examples of the compositions in question. Each chapter also provides an exhaustive bibliographic overview.
