The Sikorski Music Publishing Group has been family-owned and family-run since its founding by Dr. Hans Sikorski in the 1930s. Revealing the rare attribute of being equally committed to works from the entertainment-music branch and to those from the serious music sector as well, the Company today includes imprints encompassing a range of repertoire from songs for children to operas, ballets and concert works.

In the Company’s catalogues one therefore encounters top hits and evergreens which have become famous through interpreters such as Benjamino Gigli, Marlene Dietrich, Comedian Harmonists, Zarah Leander, Hans Albers, Heinz Rühmann, Nat "King" Cole, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Shirley Bassey, Lale Andersen, Peter Alexander, Freddy Quinn, The Hollies, Les Humphries Singers, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti. In more recent times, it has been stars such as Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, André Rieu, Götz Alsmann and Max Raabe who have presented the publishers’ titles to a wide public on recordings, the broadcasting media and in the concert hall.

A very important aspect of the Company’s programme is the area of children’s music. Above all, it is the songwriter Rolf Zuckowski who has made his mark on the publishers’ profile with his numerous titles, many of which have meanwhile attained the status of folksongs. Another elementary of concentration in the Company’s activity is the furtherance of classical and contemporary music. In these areas the spectrum ranges from chamber music, orchestral music and stage works to musicals and film music.

Sikorski’s early engagement with Soviet music secured valuable European rights to  significant Russian Composers works and led to an enduring commitment to the promotion of contemporary Soviet music. Such composers as Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergei Prokofiev, Aram Khachaturian, Dmitri Kabalevsky, Alfred Schnittke, Sofia Gubaidulina, Giya Kancheli and Lera Auerbach are represented with their works by Hans Sikorski Music Publishers in many European countries or worldwide. Among the most performed works in the Sikorski catalogue are Prokofieff’s beloved ballet, Romeo and Juliet, and iconic children’s piece Peter and the Wolf; Shostakovich’s banned opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk and symphonies; Khachaturian’s ballet Spartacus; and Shchedrin’s ever popular Carmen Suite.  Lera Auerbach (Soviet-Russian born American composer b. 973) has continued the line of popular ballets with her score for John Neumeier’s ballet The Little Mermaid. Additionally, German composers such as Peter Ruzicka, Jan Müller-Wieland and Moritz Eggert entrust their works to the publishers, as do many other authors from around the world, emphasising the publishers’ international orientation. 

As of June 2019 The Sikorski Music Publishing Group is a part of Concord Music Publishing .
