The Bärenreiter Film

January 8, 2013

Bärenreiter has recently released a short promotional video, featuring Christopher, showing the inner workings of the company at its headquarters in Kassel, Germany.

 

Christopher meets (amongst others) editors, staff from the sales and marketing department, and members of the executive board, who all reveal what it is they do and the history of the company. Issues of performance and the role of the editor are also discussed, as well as future planned projects.

"Renowned conductor and musicologist Christopher Hogwood takes you on a journey to the Bärenreiter premises and goes behind the scenes. You will be given an insight into the editorial and production process of an Urtext edition. The history of this family-owned company and today's modern operations are also revealed."
