Max Brockhaus Musikverlag distributed by Bärenreiter · Alkor
From 1 July 2016 Bärenreiter · Alkor will distribute hire and sales material from Max Brockhaus Musikverlag, which represents an important expansion of the repertoire we offer. Founded in 1893 in Leipzig, the music publisher had close connections with the Wagner family and their circle. Siegfried Wagner is represented with his operatic and orchestral output, as is Engelbert Humperdinck, whose fairy-tale opera Königskinder, with its tragic ending, is now firmly established in the stage repertoire. Less well-known are Humperdinck’s Dornröschen (Sleeping Beauty) setting and his incidental music to William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, The Tempest, A Winter’s Tale and As You Like It, and to Maurice Maeterlinck’s L’oiseau bleu (The blue bird). Hans Pfitzner is also an important pillar of the Max Brockhaus Verlag catalogue, with two operas (Der arme Heinrich, Die Rose im Liebesgarten), symphonic works and several cycles of orchestral songs. The company also published selected works by Eugène d’Albert, Carl Loewe and Heinrich Marschner. – The complete catalogue of Brockhaus’ hire material can be sent on request by PDF.
