History

Founded in Paris by Eugène-Théodore Troupenas (1799-1850), a mathematician by training, by July 1825 with the acquisition of the publishers Veuve Nicolo & Isouard. Between 1826 and 1829 he published the first editions of Rossini's last four operas: Le siège de Corinthe, Moïse, Le comte Ory and Guilllaume Tell. Later Rossini titles issued included Soirées musicales and the Stabat mater, which was the subject of a famous lawsuit with Maurice Schlesinger and Aulagnier in 1841. Upon Rossini's recommendation, Troupenas published the full score for Auber's opera La muette de Portici in 1828, which was ultimately followed by full scores for 19 Auber operas - an unusual thing for a publisher of that era. Along with opera full scores, Troupenas managed to publish vocal scores for at least 40 operas, ending the series with Meyerbeer's Le prophete (issued jointly with Brandus). Other composers represented include Onslow, Czerny, Herz, Kalkbrenner, Thalberg and Chopin, whose Opp.35-41 and 43 were first issued by Troupenas. In September 1834, Troupenas wanted to transfer his business to Henri-Louis Delloye (whose firm was named Dépot Central de la Musique et de la librairie) for health reasons but the sale never reached a conclusion. Delloye return the funds in March 1835 and Troupenas restarted operating in 1835 with the new number plate T.1. By the time of his death in April of 1850, Troupenas' catalog included some 2400 works. The catalog was taken over six months later by Brandus.

Plate Numbers

Troupenas assigned plate numbers in a regular, chronological fashion. They are therefore generally a reliable guide for dating. Caution: before 1835 plate numbers are with the format ### . In 1835, the numbering starts again at 1 but with the format T. ####. (see above : History), then T.M. #### in 1844 and finally E.T. & Co. ####. from 1845 to 1850
