Bärenreiter-Verlag Basel

In 1944 Karl Vötterle founded the first foreign Bärenreiter subsidiary in Basel, Switzerland. In this way the rights of authors could continue to be secured, thereby ensuring the distribution of their works.

To date, Bärenreiter Basel, has published works primarily by Swiss composers such as Willy Burkhard, Klaus Huber, Rudolf Kelterborn, Beat Furrer, Andrea Lorenzo Scartazzini and Dieter Ammann. The journal Acta Musicologica is also a Basel publication.
