Contemporary Music – Today's Music

Contemporary music is a venture for everyone – for audiences, promoters, publishers and the composers alike.

New Publications of the Last Months

For decades, Breitkopf & Härtel has resolutely pursued this venture, offering a portfolio of works and composers leaving a lasting impact on contemporary music. Thanks to the special history of the publishing house, our catalog reflects the genesis of contemporary music both in the FRG and in the former GDR. By including younger composers from different cultures, Breitkopf & Härtel's program also takes into account both the increasing stylistic and aesthetic diversity of the contemporary music scene.

Thus, here’s an ever growing catalog of high quality discoveries and surprises. Feel free to browse by instrumentation (within the other focuses) or by composer here!
