History

The firm traces its origins to a music store and lending library founded in Zürich, Switzerland in 1791 by Hans Georg Nägeli (1773-1836), who started publishing music in 1794. The Hug name enters the story quite soon, when in 1807 the Protestant pastor Jakob Christoph Hug took over the business. His descendants have remained in charge to this day.

The firm expanded slowly for the rest of the 19th century, firstly with branches in Basel and St. Gallen in 1865, and finally joining the mainstream publishers in Leipzig in 1885. In the last hundred years Hug has specialized in Swiss composers and music for children.

A detailed history (PDF) in English and German with many facsimile illustrations and photographs can be found at Hug and co web site.

Also known as Gebrüder Hug.
