Emanuel Starý

Typical title page 1920



Emanuel Starý (1843-1906) started this firm in Prague in 1867. It published a wide range of music, from dances to violin concertos. In the period 1867 to 1900 the catalogue included Komzák, Sporck, Emilian Starý (1876-1934), and Ottokar Nováček. After 1900 it published works by composers of the new generation such as Jan Kubelík.

They were the first publishers of a number of Dvořák's earlier works. (See e.g. description of Dvořák Op.19a at Antonin-Dvorak.cz.)
