RPS Corporate Member
Founded by Bernhard Schott in Mainz in 1770, the Schott Music group today ranks among the leading music and media publishers in the world with branches in major international markets in 10 countries. Since then, the company has added a wide range of products and services covering all aspects of music to the traditional music publishing business.
Schott’s own service and logistics centre, music distribution services GmbH (mds), distributes not only the products from the entire Schott programme but also the publications of more than 120 third-party publishers. About 130,000 titles (scores, books, recordings), stored in a modern high-bay warehouse that currently houses more than 13 million items, are shipped from Mainz worldwide every year. A main focus of the publishing programme is the publication of works by contemporary 20th- and 21st-century composers.
