Video Pick of the Week: Štĕpán Rak Plays His Moving New ‘Tombeau for Sabrina’

The day after Sabrina Vlaskalic was killed in a bicycle accident just two weeks ago, the great Czech composer-guitarist Štĕpán Rak put pencil to paper and wrote this short but truly moving Tombeau for Sabrina. When he posted it on YouTube on January 31, he wrote: “Dear friends, all of us were shocked by the recent tragedy which happened to the fabulous young guitarist Sabrina Vlaskalic. This tiny little piece is my tribute to her.”

And if you are interested in actually playing this piece, Rak has generously provided this link to the music. —Blair Jackson
