Baerenreiter editions are a German publisher, based in Kassel, one of >20%off Barenreiter high quality viola sheet musicthe biggest classical music publishers in the world. It was founded in 1923 by Karl Vötterle, starting small, publishing pieces for recorder and organ, music by Heinrich Schütz (who was at that time getting rediscovered) and with the big project of publishing the complete works of Bach, Handel, Schubert in critical editions that was as much faithful as possible to the composer's intentions.

These are the so-called Urtext editions.

To perform this task, a publisher (or rather, its editor) has to study, analyze and compare autograph manuscripts (if existing) and copies, first editions, to correct possible mistakes passed on over the years.

Baerenreiter Urtext editions

So, this is Baerenreiter's main characteristic: now they publish Urtext editions for a huge number of works, including Beethoven symphonies, and the complete works of many composers, among which the most famous are: Georg Philipp Telemann, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Johann Sebastian Bach, Gabriel Fauré, Georg Friedrich Händel, Christoph Willibald Gluck, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert, Hector Berlioz, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Leos Janacek.

They also partly own >Editio Baerenreiter Praha that publish music by Czech and Slovak composers, like >Dvorak, Smetana, Martinu.

With the publisher Metzler they also publish and sell the music encyclopedia MGG, or >Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart, (Music in the Past and the Present) in 29 volumes. Together with the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, it is the most comprehensive encyclopedia of western music in the world. The only problem (at least for me) is that it's in German, so I cannot read it! (yet, maybe).

They have been incorporating other publishers over the years. During World War II they opened a branch in Basel, Switzerland and later the premises in Kassel were destroyed by an air raid. Now they have offices in New York, Paris, Praha, UK. Baerenreiter also publish music books, educational and contemporary music.
