Excerpted from "The New Langwill Index":

Workshop est. by Georg Ludwig Wilhelm Triebert (b. 1770 Storndorf bei
Alsfeld/Hessen, d. 1848 Paris), later "Frenchified" to 'Guillaume
Triebert' (acute e) who trained as cabinetmaker. 1804 migrated on foot
to Paris and started working for N. Viennen. Established his own
workshop and married 1810, became French citizen 1811. 1834 his oboes
were declared by the Paris Exhibition jury to be superior to all others.
Recognized as the outstanding oboe maker of his time; c.1823 redesigned
the Bizey model of baritone oboe for the eminent player Vogt.

His 2 sons succeeded him; Charles Louis (b. 1810, d. 1878), was
primarily a professional oboist and teacher,but was acknowledged as
being responsible for much of the technical development. The younger
son, Frederic (b. 1813, d. 1878) was trained as a metal engraver, also
studied oboe; 1838 oboist with the Opera Comique. 1845 married and
described as 'facteur d'instruments de musique' and probably by then
successor to his father. 1853 as 'Triebert & Cie.' with Marzoli in
partnership for a period of 10 years. 1855 collaboration with Boehm over
the application of his system of keywork to tubes that he had supplied
of both oboe and bassoon; his prospectus of that year listed a complete
range of oboes and bassoons, including many with Boehm-system keywork.
In 1867 on the death of Charles Loree became foreman. c.1875 development
of the 'systeme 6' oboe model, later known as the 'Conservatoire'
system. 1878 on the sudden death of Frederic, the firm was initially
directed by Mme. C. Dehais before being bought by F. Paris, a former key
maker with the firm. In 1881, after bankruptcy, Loree left to be come
established independently, while the firm and marque was bought by
Gautrot Aine, who in 1883 were themselves taken over by Cousenon. As
late as 1934 Cousenon was advertising 'perce Triebert' (Triebert bore)
oboes stamped with their mark (barbican tower with 3 merlons).

Frederic and his brother Charles have been considered primarily
responsible for the development of the modern oboe.
