Oral History Information
Don Stewart was hired in 1957 by the famous composer Roy Harris to copy music – by HAND. Back in those days, the cost for plate engraving was too high and the music typewriters were not yet sophisticated enough to handle the scores. Don developed his own unique style in musical notation and soon freelanced for several music publishers including Carl Fischer and Boosey & Hawkes. In later years, he formed his own publishing company, Trillenium Music, with a focus on Wind Chamber Music, Opera Reduction Orchestrations, and music for Orchestras.
