The Edition Kainhofer, founded in 2010, is a music publisher for musical gems of the past centuries, which have sunk into oblivion meanwhile. We mainly publish Choir, Orchestra and Chamber Music works of the baroque and classical period, including arrangements for various string ensembles.
In the Eybler-Edition, numerous graduals and offertories of the Viennese Hofkapellmeister Joseph Edler von Eybler, a close friend of W.A. Mozart, who was originally commissioned to finished Mozart's famous requiem, are scientifically edited and published as Urtext editions.
We also publish works by other, formerly famous and highly esteemed Viennese musicians and composers (various Hofkapellmeister and music directors of the Vienna cathedral).
A further line of publications are formed by Chamber Music works, were we also publish new editions for string trio. These arrangements were mainly written by the members of the Aleksić Streichtrio.
