Sikorski Music Publishers at the Frankfurt Music Fair 2013

From 10 to 13 April 2013, the Frankfurt Music Fair, Germany’s largest music fair, will be opening its gates once again. This year, too, countless workshops, concerts and panel discussions will be offered alongside the complete range of instruments and printed music.

In line with tradition, Sikorski Music Publishers will be there on location with a stand for you. We are offering an extensive range of products from the areas of pedagogy, music for children and New Music.

Our musicals for schoolchildren are one point of emphasis this year. Jens Pape and Friederike Linder have created “Ach du meine Tüte” (piano album with CD SIK 1346 and libretto SIK 1347), a new musical dealing with the first day of school. Every child starting school can identify with this subject. With sensitivity and humour, children are relieved of their insecurity before starting school and prepared for their first day with a light, positive feeling.

“Ach du meine Tüte” is a supplement to the large offering of musicals for schoolchildren in the Sikorski catalogue. The already well-known works of this kind include ”Rolfs Vogelhochzeit”, of which there is now a new expanded edition of the idea book (SIK 0975 E). Many experiences from performances have flowed into this new edition, plus exciting ideas by Heidi Lindner, who has been inspired by the songs of Rolf Zuckowski to realise them with movements suitable for children. She offers ideas for a mini-musical for the smallest children, realising the musical in the gym and using it for children's games, including games for teams, at family game festivals.

You can obtain all important information concerning performance possibilities and printed editions, as well as recorded examples and indications of contents of our musicals for schoolchildren, on our new website:


We heartily recommend Volume I of the new series “Russian Piano Music” (SIK 2409) to friends of the “Russian Piano School”. To satisfy the unceasing demand for piano literature at all levels of difficulty, a volume was compiled with easy to moderately difficult pieces by composers from Russia and countries of the former Soviet Union. The compilation is not at all meant to be a piano method, but a collection of pieces intended to expand the repertoire.

You can obtain all information concerning both volumes of the “Russian Piano School” and the tape recording, as well as the new volume “Russian Piano Music”, on our new website:

There is also new music in the area of modern “Russian” music. The Georgian composer and cellist Sulkhan Tsintsadze was a member of the Georgian State String Quartet, for which the first three Miniatures for String Quartet were composed. As in many other compositions of his, Tsintsadze (who died in Tiflis in 1991) was influenced by Georgian folk music in his Miniatures for String Quartet, which were later expanded to include 21 pieces. Still today, the Miniatures are among the most successful compositions by this Georgian and are now available as a printed edition (score SIK 2424 and set of parts SIK 2425). In addition, the score to the version for string orchestra (SIK 2426) is now available as well.

Also new is the spring edition of our Sikorski Magazine (2/2013), in which we concern ourselves with, among other subjects, the boundaries between noise and tones in the New Music and the 100th birthday of the popular composer Lotar Olias.
