History

This London firm was founded in 1938 by Max Hinrichsen (1901-1965), one of three sons of Henri Hinrichsen (1868-1942), the manager of Edition Peters Leipzig from 1900-1938. His brothers also worked in the music publishing business. Henri (1909-1940) stayed in Germany while Walter (1901-1969) emigrated to New York and founded C.F. Peters New York. After his death the firm was managed by his widow Irene from 1965-75, but then renamed as Edition Peters London.

Hinrichsen published organ music, brass band music and contemporary composers. It was involved in a famous lawsuit (1950-51) with Novello and Co. over the copyright of Christian Sinding's "Rustle of Spring".
