This trilingual dictionary is intended for all those who, on an international level, are concerned with brass instruments. I have tried to consider the terminology of the various branches, such as: musicologists, curators of museums, collectors, performers and other professionals, teachers and students; as well as instrument makers, translators and last but not least, lovers of brass and interested readers.
It should be pointed out that this book is not meant to be a lexicon, or a trilingual dictionary of music. It is a glossary in 3 languages of the most important terms in current use of the brass world. Only where a catchword needs clarification or where the object referred to is not well-known is it followed by a brief definition.
