Faber Music Ltd.
Faber Music Ltd was founded in 1965, as a sister company to the distinguished book publisher Faber and Faber, for the principal purpose of publishing the music of Benjamin Britten. It now enjoys a world-wide reputation as one of the leading independent British publishers of classical and contemporary music.
Benjamin Britten’s music lies at the very heart of its catalogue with major works including the operas Death in Venice, Owen Wingrave, Paul Bunyan and the three Church Parables Curlew River, The Burning Fiery Furnace and The Prodigal Son.
Alongside this sit repertory works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst and Malcolm Arnold, as well as a performance catalogue featuring a distinguished list of living house composers which includes: Thomas Adès, Oliver Knussen, George Benjamin, Jonathan Harvey, Julian Anderson, Colin and David Matthews, as well as Australians Peter Sculthorpe, Carl Vine and Matthew Hindson. Faber Music is also very pleased to represent the German composer Torsten Rasch.
Alongside a growing catalogue of widely performed orchestral works, Faber Music handles such major operas as Thomas Adès’ highly praised The Tempest and Powder Her Face, George Benjamin’s celebrated Into the Little Hill, Oliver Knussen’s double bill Higglety Pigglety Pop! and Where the Wild Things Are, as well as Jonathan Harvey’s visionary Wagner Dream.
The company continues actively to build up and promote its music copyrights internationally, and is proud to provide distribution and administration facilities of unrivalled excellence.
