Stern & Co.

early cover 1845
Stern & Ollendorff cover 1895



Stern & Co. published a variey of works from 1845 to 1852 and from 1890 onwards. However, HMB shows that it also produced the quarterly Neue Berliner Musik-Zeitung, edited by Richard Stern, continuously from 1845 until the 1890s. In the early period the catalog contained a variety of works, mainly songs and piano pieces, by Kucken, Dancla, Schulhof and Balfe, presumably reprints of their partners Messonier of Paris and Cramer of London. In the 1890s there were many songs, mainly by Arno Kleffel (1840—1913), and instrumental works by Hollaender (cello) and Sauret (violin).
Another company with a similar name, Joseph W. Stern, operated in New York in the early 20th century.
