One Hundred Years in the Service of Musicians Worldwide
Bärenreiter is celebrating its 100th birthday. The company, which published its first song sheets in Augsburg in 1923 and was officially founded by Karl Vötterle in 1924, is one of the largest music publishers worldwide today. Musicians, musicologists and music lovers value its music editions and music books. With scholarly-critical complete editions of the works of Bach, Handel, Mozart, Schubert and many other great composers from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods, the publisher has made an international name for itself since the 1950s. The “Bärenreiter Urtext” editions are the basis for study and performances on all continents. In addition to the music editions, which are at the centre of the publishing programme, the now 100-year-old publisher also issues an ambitious programme of music books, music educational textbooks and works by contemporary composers.
The family-owned company is managed by the daughter of the founder, Barbara Scheuch-Vötterle, her husband Leonhard Scheuch, and their son Clemens Scheuch.
