Mirko Kolarić

Composer Alpha
Kolaric, Mirko

Mirko Kolarić was a Croatian composer (born near the present-day borders with Slovenia and Hungary) of the early twentieth century. He was a Roman Catholic, and composed both Roman masses and Byzantine Catholic liturgical music. He narrowly escaped the Bleiburg massacre, but on returning home was brutally murdered by an acquaintance at the age of 35. As a result, he had not yet composed a large corpus of work, and he faded into obscurity.
