CONTACT Gems Music Publications

Welcome

Gems Music Publications was founded in 2008 by Kenneth Martinson, viola professor at the University of Florida. The goal of the company is to provide an expansion on the available music for violists, and make available rarely performed "gems" that are only available in manuscript form found in difficult to visit music libraries from various parts of the world. Gems Publications strives to publish music in the cleanest form possible, free of editors bowings and fingerings, so that the viola performer can have an interpretation as close to the composer's intentions as possible.
