Ernst Mosch was born on november 7th 1925 in Zwodau by Falkenau in Egerland
He stole the harts of many folk music lovers with his " Original Egerländer musicians.
Millions of people were his and his orchestra , as they say in Germany "Begeistert ", he made his own swinging sound..
There fore now running in 42 countries, more than 40 million LP's and CD's from him,.
29 golden, platinum and diamond LP's reflect his grand succes, not to mention the many CD's he made with his Original Egerländer Musicians.
In one of his TV intervieuws in the video " Ein Leben für die Blasmusik "he says, Meine Musik ist mein Leben, Ich brauche sie wie das tächliche Brot und deshalp setze ich mir keinen schlußpunkt, das macht ein Änderer".
Thus began his career in music.

The folksmusic stole his heart, and his favorite instrument is the trombone.
After the end of his school, he was glad he could go to the long-awaited Städtische Musikschule in Oelsnitz in Voightland.
