musicologist. He did his musicology study at the University of Basel
(1959-1964) with Prof. Leo Schrade.
Tarr has been a pioneer in the revival of Baroque and
Romantic era trumpet performance practice.
His book, The Trumpet

edition (2005) is now available, and contains - for the first time - a
very interesting CD. The book was first published in 1977 but has been
revised several times since then.
