Edward H. Tarr has passed away
« on: March 26, 2020, 12:04:04 AM »
Musicologist, author, and trumpeter Ed Tarr has died. He was from the USA, but lived in Switzerland. He recorded many Renaissance and Baroque natural trumpet pieces. His Hummel recording is the one I have always preferred.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIHXmF1Yyws&list=PLjQsyGmPDmPPhoHJJ2J803QTUUmAaq40s

Sad. He was a major moving force in the renaissance of the natural trumpet, I have read some few of his writings and listened to several CD's. Other trumpeters give him a lot of credit for their own career course.  RIP...
