Biographical history

Dr. Ulrich Drüner is a member of the Association of German Antiquarian Booksellers and runs the Musikantiquariat (Music Books) in Stuttgart, Germany, which included a Viola collection containing various musical works written for the viola.

Drüner was a student of the noted pedagogue, Ulrich Koch, and became a member of the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester, and further the Württembergisches Staats- and Opernorchester. He took his doctorate in musicology on the subject of Richard Wagner at the University of Strassbourg. Drüner is probably best known for his modern editions of numerous works for viola, including Paganini's Grand Sonata, and Das Studium der Viola, consisting of about a hundred original viola etudes from the 19th century. Along side his professional playing career, he has become one of Europe's leading music antiquarian dealers.
