    Indiana University Press 2014; US$ 39.99

This colorful past is reflected in the arsenal of instruments a classical trumpeter employs during a performance, sometimes... more...

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 27.61

    Bis heute ist Rudolf Mauersberger (1889-1971) in erster Linie durch seine kirchenmusikalische Tätigkeit, insbesondere als Dresdner Kreuzkantor in den Jahren 1930-1971, bekannt.
