Abraham Hirsch

cover 1870s



  • Not to be confused with mid-19th-century publisher Friedlein & Hirsch of Leipzig.


This Stockholm firm was founded by Abraham Hirsch (1815-1900) and taken over by his son Otto in 1884. For a few years in the 1840s it published the weekly "Stockholms musik-tidning". It published works of Nordic composers such as Kjerulf, Stenhammar, Berens, Aulin, Teilman and Norman.

It existed as late as 1920s and perhaps more recently (they were the first publisher of Sibelius' 6th symphony, e.g.) (First appears in HMB in 1843, as publisher of Carl Reinecke's Op.2.) In 1943, it merged into Carl Gehrman ("Hirsch förlag bis 1943 , als die Firma in den Verlag Carl Gehrman aufging".)
