Edition Peters

Publisher Profile

Edition Peters, with its three offices in Leipzig, London and New York, has
always had a truly international approach to music. Continuing the tradition, 2018
sees the company launch many projects sourced from a richly diverse range of
cultures and countries.
We begin with the launch of The Silk Road Series, a groundbreaking co-
publication with our partners in China, the Central Conservatoire of Music Press
in Beijing. Eight of China’s leading contemporary composers have contributed
major works to the series, inspired by the Silk Road. And fittingly, Leipzig – where
the Peters story began in 1800 – is now on the New Silk Road (“Belt and Road”).
Leipzig provides the powerful music included in our Peters East German
Library 1949 – 1990. The years in which Germany, and the publishing house itself,
were divided between East and West form an important chapter in the company’s
story. The output of composers from the East German firm – then known as VEB
Edition Peters, Leipzig – forms a unique and valuable part of the company’s identity
and, more widely, of European cultural history, making this repertoire well worth
rediscovering. Additionally, as a city inextricably associated with J.S. Bach, Leipzig
links to The Orgelbüchlein Project: a 21st-century completion of Bach’s Orgelbüchlein.
From the New Silk Road we travel to South America with
La Voz Latina – a project eagerly awaited by choral directors
around the world. This landmark project has been years in
development, and will provide an amazingly rich new offering
of previously unavailable music for choirs. Our Latin theme
continues with Tango Canción. Tango is surely one of the most
passionate and popular musical forms, and this new collection
brings together some of the most famous tunes in new
arrangements for voice and piano.
Back in Europe we continue our commitment to new Urtext editions, renewing
and extending some of the most important sections of the Edition Peters catalogue.
Highlights this year include the release of the next volumes in The Complete Chopin –
A New Critical Edition, and new editions of the keyboard music of J.S. Bach and Liszt.
2018 also brings the completion of our award-winning Fauré Songs edition: the
first ever serious critical assessment and Urtext edition of this inspirational and
essential repertoire for singers.
Finally, with more than the score… we explore the exciting link between print
and digital products from a truly global perspective. This series uses exclusive
content available in the Piano Masterworks collection on the Tido Music platform.
This rapidly growing library of video performances, masterclasses and digital
editions, enhanced with audio recordings and enlightening contextual articles on
the composers and their music, now boasts over 100 Edition Peters volumes of
essential piano music – a truly amazing resource for all pianists. Edition Peters is
without doubt the vocal music publisher of choice for singers around the world,
and has now released vocal digital editions on the two latest collections on the
Tido platform: Vocal Masterworks and Educational Vocal. The first titles released
in digitally-enhanced editions with audio include the iconic Arie Antiche and Vaccai’s
Metodo Pratico, together with hundreds of Lieder and chansons. A great start for
singers of all levels.
