As a composer deeply immersed in the world of musical notation, I have always had a passion for creating scores. Ever since I was 16, I have been collecting rare sheet music, and by the age of 17, I dreamt of having my own publishing house. Finally, at the age of 38, that dream has become a reality. After two years of meticulous planning, preparation, and production, along with countless interactions with foundations dedicated to forgotten composers, pianists, musicologists, and librarians, and nearly a year of trial with a web store featuring just four products, I am thrilled to announce that the moment has arrived.
In the first half of September, Felix Editions will go live, offering an impressive collection of 15 publications, comprising both albums and individual works, which can be shipped to music enthusiasts around the world. Our catalogue includes compositions by 'known unknowns' such as Henselt and Schumann-Wieck, but also composers whose names may be familiar, but whose piano music has been largely forgotten. Additionally, we proudly present works by entirely obscure masters like De Hartog or Woelfl, whose fine talents deserve to be rediscovered.
Before our official launch, we are fine-tuning the final details. Yet, we couldn't wait to share the exciting news with you. In the meantime, you can still explore and purchase our current "old" assortment, featuring four albums with music by Henselt, Czerny, Wolff, and Litolff. These albums will be retired at launch and exchanged for newer versions.
Felix Editions aims to be a haven for both seasoned musicians seeking hidden gems and curious enthusiasts eager to delve into the vast array of forgotten musical treasures. Our mission is to bring these long-lost compositions back into the spotlight, enriching the musical landscape with their unique voices and inspiring stories.
Stay tuned for more updates and mark your calendar for September 1st when Felix Editions officially opens its virtual doors to the world. Join us on this thrilling journey of exploration and rediscovery, as we celebrate the beauty and diversity of forgotten musical masterpieces. Together, let's revive the legacy of these extraordinary composers and ensure their creations resonate once again in the hearts and minds of music lovers everywhere.
