Monument to Franjo Krežma
The monument to the excellent composer and virtuoso Franjo Krežma was built in the late sixties of the 20th century, and its author is sculptor Vanja Radauš. Franjo Krežma was born in Osijek in 1862, and died at a very young age – he was only nineteen. His short yet rich life was filled with successes in the field of music. His contemporaries recognized him as a prominent artist at the age of eight. He was educated in Zagreb, and then in the Vienna Conservatory, after which he performed before a large audience in Paris, Venice, Rome, Prague and Genoa. His musical work includes three overtures, dances for orchestra, a symphony and marches, and he was a concertmaster in Berlin. He is a highly respected historical figure, and the Society of Friends of Music, one primary school and a chamber orchestra were named after this famous Osijek virtuoso.
