History

Founded in 1853 by George Augener (1830-1915). Augener was a German immigrant who learned the music trade by working for the publisher Andre in Offenbach. In 1898, he initiated the process of acquiring the British publisher Robert Cocks. This was finally accomplished in 1904 and the two firms became known as Augener & Co., Ltd. The expanded company was purchased by Willy Strecker and Schott in 1910 when Augener retired, though Schott was forced to relinquish its interest at the outbreak of the First World War (1914). The catalogues of the UK publishers Joseph Weekes and Joseph Williams were added in 1960-61, just in time for Augener's sale to Galaxy Music of New York in 1962, after which it became a division of Galaxy's UK subsidiary, Galliard, Ltd. Galliard, Ltd. was in turn sold to Stainer & Bell, Ltd. in 1972.

Note: the early Augener catalogs, 1861, are called the Universal Circulating Musical Library. In this they are identical to products from 1856 of Gustav Scheurmann & Co. - perhaps a partner of Augener's? (See Scheurmann with 1856 supplements, Augener 1861 catalogs (all from the same address as used by Augener, and selling products associated with Augener.)

Composers published by Augener

Augener was instrumental in publishing Reger's early works from 1893 until their rejection (despite a seven-year contract) in 1898 of his Piano Quintet in C Minor which remained long unpublished after that, being remitted by its composer into the hands of Adalbert Lindner.
