Rak, Tombeau for Sabrina
Štěpán Rak, Tombeau for Sabrina
For solo guitar and for guitar duet.
The 17th of January 2019 guitarist Sabrina Vlaškalić was killed in a tragic traffic accident in Groningen. It was only a few days before the second Guitar Concerto Competition & Festival in Groningen should take place with Sabrina as the primus motor.
I never met Sabrina in person, but we were often in contact - because Bergmann Edition did support the first festival in 2018 and we were going to help the second festival as well. We were in touch even the day before she died, and only later I understood why she suddenly didn't answer my e-mails.
The accident took everybody who knew her with horror and shock - even those in the guitar world, like me, who only had been peripherical aquintainced.
More than one composer for the guitar has written pieces in the memory of Sabrina Vlaškalić. Also, the legendary Stepan Rak has contributed with his "Tombeau for Sabrina".
All contenders at the upcoming second festival in Groningen in 2020, will get a copy of this publication.
