O.J.'s Trumpet Page Artists and personalities

Edward H. Tarr

Background:
Edward H. Tarr was born June 15, 1936 in
Connecticut, USA. He was a student of two of the most respected orchestral trumpeters: Roger Voisin,  (Boston Symphony Orchestra) and Adolph Herseth (Chicago Symphony Orchestra)

Tarr is an internationally known trumpet artist and a 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: Mainz, Schott, 1994), is the standard work in its field. The 4th revised 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.

News: February, 2009 - finally, a new enlarged and revised version of The Trumpet is published in english!

Edward Tarr was the first director of the Trumpet Museum in Bad Säckingen, Germany
