About peermusic

After peermusic's foundation in 1927 by Ralph S. Peer it is directed today in 2nd generation by Chairman/CEO Ralph Peer, II. The publishing house represents about 600 000 copyrights of all genres, which are marketed in 30 countries of the world by a global network of local branches. Works of more than 800 composers from 58 countries are published by the house.

peermusic founded its concert music division in New York in 1948, today Peermusic Classical New York, where over 3000 works including modern classics such as Charles Ives and Morten Lauridsen are published. The Hamburg branch office for the European distribution of the peermusic classical catalogue was opened in 1961. Steadily growing and representing over 700 additional works of composers including Mieczyslaw Weinberg, it was transformed into its own GmbH in 2009.

With a wide range of opportunities of the largest privately owned music publisher in the world, Peermusic Classical provides an advantageous, global platform to modern classical music.
