Welcome to the homepage of the Edition Nordstern. This small company publishes classical music and is specialized on forgotten and rarely played music from the romantic period that spans from the 19th century to the early 20th century.

With our editions of neglected works we would like to  make them available to music lovers, musicologists, and performers who want to explore the musical regions beyond the usual repertoire.
