Giving famous and forgotten music new style
Trubcher Music is based in Poole, Dorset, UKRoz Trubger - Music Archaeologist, Arranger, copyist
Meet the management Team:
Roz (B.Mus Cert.Ed) was a flute player and teacher for 30 years before moving into music research and publishing. She started writing the A-Lister duets for use with her own pupils and was so impressed by the results that she decided to make them available to other teachers and students. She has made a particular study of forgotten composers and writes a regular feature for the Journal of the British Flute Society. She also appeared at the BBC Proms Events in London to introduce the music of Ethel Smyth. In 2006 she published the first edition of the Symphony no. 2 by Giovanni Sgambati which had its world Premiere in Rome in February 2014. Other new world premieres have included the Vogelkantate by Johanna Kinkel and the Symphony in E major by Emilie Mayer. Roz is always happy to help you find the answer to a musical problem.
Colin Hind - Print Room Manager, Sales Adviser
Colin had considerable managerial experience before joining Trubcher, including several years managing a country hotel. His understanding of machinery, patient approach to problems and affable Glaswegian sense of humour have proved invaluable to the business. Colin is using his expertise in hospitality and his experience teaching English to foreign students to develop ideas for residential music courses about Forgotten Composers.
Cat Diamond - Single Reed expert, Graphics adviser
Cat (CELTA) is a Neuroscientist and Saxophonist. In 2010 she was soloist in the UK premiere of Aria & Allegro for Soprano Saxophone and wind band by Greg Pascuzzi. She also plays flute and enjoys testing-driving the new A-Lister publications. Cat finds that advising us on the graphic aspects of this business provides a pleasant contrast to her other work writing papers on neuroscience. Cat is looking forward to having time to complete her set of Tango pieces for saxophone which will be published by us.
Mike Diment - Overseas and Technical Adviser
