Lovro von Matačić (February 14, 1899, Suak, Croatia – January 4, 1985, Belgrade, Yugoslavia), also Lovro pl. Matačić, was a Croatian conductor. He was a member of the Vienna Boys Choir and studied in Vienna before holding a variety of conducting positions in Germany and Yugoslavia. He is most associated with the music of Bruckner, though he committed quite a wide range of music to recordings, including works by Beethoven and Puccini.|
During World War II, he served as a lieutenant colonel in the Croatian Home Guard and was conductor for the Independent State of Croatia's military bands. After the war he was sentenced to death by Communist Yugoslavia's government. However, his wife Lilika, who was Jewish, petitioned the Jewish-Yugoslav politician Moa Pijade who intervened and gained Matačić release after a year in imprisonment.
The Lovro pl. Matačić Lifetime Achievement Award is awarded biennally by the Croatian Association of Musical Artists.
