Brockhaus is the most famous German language encyclopedia, started around 1800 by Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus. Max Brockhaus (1867-1957) belonged to this dynasty. The family had strong connections with the 19th century musical world, because in mid-century two of Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus's sons married Wagner's sisters. While Max Brockhaus's brothers and cousins went into publishing, academia or politics, Max decided to use his musical leanings.
Brockhaus founded his music publishing company in 1893 by acquiring the catalogs of Hermann Haessel, Eduard Wedl, and part of the catalog of Joseph Roth. Thus the firm started with a catalog of works by Jakob Ils, Ignaz Brüll, Jacob Dont, Robert Fuchs, Carl Reinecke, Rudolf Bibl und Franz Schubert
The firm became famous for publishing operas between 1893 and 1914, first by Humperdinck (Königskinder (1897)), then by Pfitzner (Der arme Heinrich, many songs, then works first published by Feuchtinger) , S. Wagner, Karel Weis („Der polnische Jude“), Richard Heuberger („Barfüßele“), Anselm Götzl („Zierpuppen“), Bodo Sigwart („Die Lieder des Euripides“) and Hans Hermann Wetzler („Die baskische Venus“).
In 1976 the company was merged with the Bonn publisher, Joachim von Roebel (1945-2004). In 2006 there was a major revision to the company that resulted in several reprints of public domain works.
