About Chester Music Ltd.:

The roots of Chester Music stretch back to the 1860s when John and William Chester became the first owners of the then Brighton-based company. In the early days the company specialised in the distribution of imported overseas editions of classical music. It was Chester’s reputation in Europe early in the twentieth century that attracted it to its new owner, Otto Kling, and to the many continental composers whom Chester was amongst the first to publish, including Stravinsky, Poulenc and Falla. As the century progressed, Chester moved its offices to London and its reputation grew as a vibrant company interested in both contemporary music and educational publishing. In the second half of the century, firstly under the ownership of Edition Wilhelm Hansen and, since 1988 as part of the Music Sales Group, the company has consolidated its international reputation in two specific areas – as a publisher of the finest of contemporary classical composers (Lutoslawski, Tavener, Weir, Saariaho, Salonen and Henze amongst many others) as well as of the leading composers writing for not only the concert hall but also for film and other media (including Nyman, Glass, Pook, Talbot, Einaudi and Yared).

PWM Edition’s 75th anniversary album GREAT ENCOUNTERS

GREAT ENCOUNTERS are performers’ meetings with excellent music, but also the encounters of great personalities from the past with composers who enjoy successes in our own times. Fryderyk Chopin, Henryk Wieniawski, Stanisław Moniuszko, Karol Szymanowski, and Ignacy Jan Paderewski did for Polish music what the three great Romantic bards and the giants of positivistic novel achieved in the field of literature. Their music not only impresses audiences with its beautiful form and emotional charge, but also provides modern-day artists with an inexhaustible source of inspiration. That music preserves for us the idiom of Polishness, to which, willy-nilly, by way of homage or rebellion, successful generations of artists and music lovers continue to return as to a point of reference. On GREAT ENCOUNTERS, this is done by the most outstanding representatives of Polish jazz and popular music.

POLISH HEROINES OF MUSIC – a new album in the SOUNDS series

In recognition of the need to acknowledge that voice, on 29th January ANAKLASIS will release the CD POLISH HEROINES OF MUSIC, comprising orchestral works by Elżbieta Sikora, Hanna Kulenty, Grażyna Bacewicz, and Agata Zubel.
