Brief von Timofej Dokschitzer

Timofej Dokschitzer schrieb mir am 5.3.1999:


Dear Mr. Josef Bayer,

I know Adolf Scherbaum well and we more than once met with him in jury of different contents. I also had the pleasure to listen to his magnificent playing.

In my memory remains his brilliant wit. Once he with a very serious expression gave out his calling cards, where the phone numbers were listed as following:

The Pope .............
President Reagan ............
Prime Minister Thatcher .............
Chancellor Kohl ............
President Mitterand ...........
Adolf Scherbaum ............

It was also very interesting to rub shoulders with him. If I would meet him now, he probably would tell me new joke.

I send to you and to him my last record of Jewish Music. In ITG has to appear my CD with piano concert of Shostacovich with my transcription for trumpet.

Sincerely,
