NASTASIJEVlC MUSEUM

Svetomir Nastasijevic came from a gifted family: his brothers were a poet, a painter and a writer, his sisters a historian and a mathematician. He himself was trained as an architect, but worked from the early 1920s as a violinist in Belgrade and then at the opera house and at the radio. Three of his operas, including the Serbian historical drama Djurad Brankovic, were given in Belgrade, where he lived from 1920 until his death in 1979. Nastasijevic was born in 1902 in Gornji Milanovac, just over 100 km south of the capital. He died in 1980. The museum of the Rudnik-Takovo region, established in 1994, commemorates him and his family in a building on the site of the house of his birth (the actual house burnt down in 1941). In it are his piano, in good playing order, his library, copies of some of his writings, programmes of his concerts in Belgrade in the 1930s, personal documents and certificates, and the scores of Djurad Brankovicc and other works.
