Suppliers of Medtner sheet music


Zimmermann www.zimmermann-frankfurt.de

Publishers of the majority of Medtner's works from Op 37 onwards, which can be ordered from their online shop.

Boosey & Hawkes www.boosey.com

Online shop lists a mixture of their own and other publishers' editions. Handlers for Édition Russe de Music. The catalogue lists ERM publications up to Op 35. I have had mixed success with the custom print service. My attempt in 2006 to order the Op 17 Novelles and Op 19 songs elicited the reply "The complete Op 19 and Op 17 are now out of print, and we are unable to obtain or produce copies". The catalogue now explicitly states that these items are for sale, so future requests may be more fruitful.

Edition Peters www.edition-peters.com

Agents for Forberg and Belaieff. They also list a few works from the Zimmermann catalogue. I have found the online ordering service very good. The New York website (linked above) offers the widest choice.

Stainer & Bell www.stainer.co.uk

Will supply authorised photocopies of the Op 58 two-piano works. Speedy service.

Dover Publications www.doverpublications.com

Publishes the piano sonatas (in two volumes) and the complete Fairy Tales. Reproduced from the 1959 Collected Edition with translations of the Russian footnotes etc.

Recital Publications www.recitalpublications.com

US publisher offering reprints of the early songs. Can also be ordered through Theodore Front, who will ship outside the USA.

Classical Vocal Repertoire Classical Vocal Reprints

Offers reprints of the early songs within the USA.

Ruslania www.ruslania.com

Finland-based distributor of Russian books, sheet music and media. Offers a few Medtner scores published in Russia.

The online vendors offering the largest selection of Medtner are Sheet Music Plus and Musicroom. Each lists some publications not offered by the other, so it is worth trying both. The German site notenbuch.de offers works from the Zimmermann, Boosey & Hawkes and Peters catalogues.

All works except the piano quintet, a few works with no opus and the full scores of the concertos. Includes the early sonatina. Mixture of editions for the solo works; songs are from the 1959 Collected Edition apart from Op 19, Op 19a and Op 52. The site occasionally goes down without warning.

Many other composers' works, particularly Russian, are downloadable from The Score Library. Non-Russian speakers will find the URLs useful for decoding the works (hover over the link with the mouse).
