Blaž Arnič (1901 - 1970)

Born in Luče near the Savinja river, the composer Blaž Arnič studied composing at the Ljubljana Conservatory and in Vienna, and advanced his studies in Warsaw and Paris. He taught music at Bol on the island of Brač and in Ljubljana. Upon his return from the Dachau Concentration Camp, he was appointed full professor of composing at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana in 1945. A highly versatile musician, Arnič wrote a number of choral pieces, lieders, piano and chamber pieces. He is particularly well known for his nine symphonies and is considered to be his generation's most distinctive composer of symphonies in Slovenia. The stamp depicts apart from Jakac's portrait of B. Arnič, also a detail of a manuscipt score of his Symphony Duma.
