Scharwenka brothers list



The Bremen music publisher Praeger & Meier was founded in 1864. It published mainly light works--piano music and songs, including many by George Hendrik Witte and some by Algernon Ashton. Perhaps the most famous composer whose works the firm published was Xaver Scharwenka. Unusually, it has continued without being taken over to the present day.
