This firm was active in Cologne from 1910 until at least 1941, publishing mainly contemporary composers and some Baroque works (Pergolesi, Pisendel, Biber). The best known contemporary composers were Schoenberg (Friede auf Erden, Op.13, 1912), Pfitzner, and Delius. Many works of the following less well-know composers are found in the catalog: Julius Weismann, Karl Marx, Ewald Straesser, J.H. Wetzel, Wedig, Walter Courvoisier, Waldemar von Baussnern, and Rudolph Bergh. Most of the works were songs, piano pieces or chamber works, but there were some orchestral works and concertos.
The imprint is now owned by Musik-Kral of Mauerkirchen (near Linz in Austria), a publisher of folk music especially for the zither, which also owns the imprints Fr. Portius, Bachschmid, E. Bauer, JLG Grimm, and Zinneberg.
