Bulgarian violin virtuoso Vasco Abadjiev was born on this day in 1926.
Plagued by the war years and the death of his beloved mother in 1965, much like contemporary Christian Ferras, his adult life tragically spiralled into sadness, alcoholism, financial struggle and deep depression.
He sadly took his own life in 1978 – aged just 51.
