    • Performing Rights

      If a work you would like to perform is protected by copyright, you will need to not only hire the performance material but also obtain a performance license. To receive a performance license for small right music (e.g. Symphonies, Solo Concertos, etc.) please contact your local collecting society. The performance of grand right works (e.g. Operas, Ballets) is licensed by Schott Music directly.

      Please contact Mr. Staude in this matter.

    • Reprint Requests

      If you would like to reprint a work from the Schott Music catalogue you will need our permission and a license. Please contact Mrs. Schütz-Meisel in this matter. Please describe your plans as accurately as possible. The transmission of a request does not guarantee a reprint license. After checking your enquiry we will contact you as soon as possible.
      We look forward to your request!

    • Arrangements

      We do not allow arrangements of our works.  And no requests will be accepted.

    • Foreign Rights

      We are delighted to be able to offer our most recent publications, along with some of the best-selling titles in our back catalogue, for publication in foreign-language editions.
      If you're interested in buying foreign rights, we're happy to send copies for perusal along with background information on the books.
