About the music edition:
Sanja Drakulić (1963) graduated in 1986 from the piano class of Pavica Gvozdić at the Music Academy in Zagreb, and further studied in Nice, Weimar, Paris and Moscow (under R. Kehrer). She studied composition at the École Normale de Musique Alfred Cortot in Paris, Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna and at the Music Academy in Zagreb (with S. Horvat). In 1987 she enrolled in the P. I. Tchaikovsky State Conservatory in Moscow (under Professors A. Pirumov and Y. Butsko), from which she obtained her master's degree in 1992 and doctoral degree 1994. She simultaneously studied musicology and organ (O. Janchanko). Her composing oeuvre contains about a hundred compositions of all types, but is dominated by chamber and vocal-instrumental pieces. Her works have been performed by famous Croatian and foreign soloists and ensembles, while she performs her piano pieces herself. She has won multiple awards for her compositions in Croatia, as well as the first prize of the All-Russian Competition for Young Composers held in Moscow in 1993. She is a member of the Russian Federation of Composers and the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. Drive for piano was a set composition at the EPTA International competition in Osijek 2009.
