Music | Theatre
12-14 Mortimer Street

London, W1T 3JJ
United Kingdom

Specialises in stage plays and music.

Works in conjunction with many overseas agents.

No unsolicited MSS; preliminary letter essential.

Founded 1938.

Josef Weinberger founded his publishing business in Vienna in 1885. Through an association with Johann Strauss II, he began licensing performances of Strauss' operettas. Licensing stage works has been a vital part of our work ever since and the principal Viennese operetta composers are represented in our catalogue: Strauss, Millöcker, Zeller, Kálmán, Oscar Straus, Stolz and Fall. We have administered the copyrights of Franz Lehár for many years for Lehár's own company, Glocken Verlag.

We have expanded into several other musical genres over the years: contemporary classical, light orchestral, educational, brass and military band, and religious. Our associated production music library, JW Media Music Ltd, is a leader in its field, while our sister companies in Vienna and Frankfurt have developed repertoire for their own respective markets.

Today, our theatre catalogue spans the century, from Viennese operettas to British musicals of the 1990s. It spans the globe too, through our representation for the UK and other European territories of the prestigious Broadway show catalogues of Music Theatre International and the Rodgers & Hammerstein Theatre Library. 1998 saw another development, our expansion into the arena of the play with the acquisition of rights in the stage works of the Hungarian playwright Ferenc Molnár.
