About Les Productions d’Oz and Doberman-Yppan:

Founded in 1986 by Sylvain Lemay, Les Productions d’OZ has quickly established itself as a leader in classical guitar music publishing, both for solo instrument and in ensemble music settings. More than thirty years later, the drive and enthusiasm of the company continues to amaze, as much as the quality of its publications and the impressive number of new issues, evidence of a sustaining interest in classical guitar. With the acquisition of Doberman Editions in 2010, the catalogue has expanded to include all orchestral instruments, as well as a wide selection of Canadian contemporary works.
