History

In 1881 the violinist and composer Franz Ries (1846–1932) founded together with the publisher Hermann Erler (1844–1918) the music publishing house 'Ries & Erler' in Berlin. After Erler’s death Franz Ries continued the business alone. In 1924 he gave the management to his son Robert. From 1942 on the latters two daughters, Waltraud and Ingrid, became proprietors of the publishing house. During World War II the home of the company in Berlin was destroyed, but it was reconstructed again in the following years. After Waltraud Ries's death Ingrid Meurer continued with the business. In 1997 her son Andreas took over the publishing house. Today the company's focus is among others on contemporary music.

(A note on founding: there are several sources which say of this or that score, "Published by Robert Seitz (date before 1881) (later Ries & Erler)", etc. at least strongly suggesting that Seitz's catalog was purchased by Ries and Erler when they began their joint concern or sometime in that vicinity; it would be interesting to know the details.)
