Faber Music is the proud publisher of the Edition Peters print catalogue, one of the world's leading classical music publishers. With a distinguished history stretching back to 1800, the Edition Peters print catalogue consists of over 12,000 titles and its name is synonymous with the highest quality music worldwide. It remains unrivalled in its range: from the most up-to-date Urtext editions and trusted core repertoire to top educational editions and an extraordinarily diverse choice of works by the world's leading contemporary composers.
Musicians the world over instantly recognise the iconic Edition Peters brand and covers. Launched in Leipzig in 1867, the green covers revolutionised the music industry and quickly became a global phenomenon, offering everyone the opportunity to access music in high quality practical editions at affordable prices. Edition Peters was also one of the very first publishers to issue Urtext editions, with the publication of Ludwig Landshoff's ground-breaking edition of J.S. Bach's Inventions and Sinfonias in 1933.
Virtually all the core classical repertoire can be found within the distinguished green covers, from classic editions such as Mendelssohn's Songs Without Words and Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier to Robert Schumann's Kinderszenen and Beethoven's piano sonatas. Drawing on the latest research, the catalogue is continually refreshed: ongoing projects include The Complete Chopin under Editor-in-Chief John Rink and Leslie Howard's Liszt editions. Important recent Urtext editions include works by Bach, Fauré, Mozart and Ravel, and the complete works of Robert Schumann.
The diverse Edition Peters print catalogue of new works by composers of the 20th and 21st centuries includes the music of John Cage and composers as wide-ranging as Mark Andre, Milton Babbitt, Sally Beamish, George Crumb, Jonathan Dove, Brian Ferneyhough, Marc-André Hamelin, Mauricio Kagel, Roxanna Panufnik, Rebecca Saunders, Erkki-Sven Tüür and Errollyn Wallen among many others.
