Publishing today's leading composers and the classic names of the 20th Century, the Music Sales Group is a rich resource for your choreography.

The tools on this Dance Flash include an audio sampler, information on licensing works, our Opera/Ballet catalogue for further information, and the Rental Form to request fee quotes.

Important notice: audio clips on this Dance Flash must be licensed to be used for performance.

Music Sales is a world-wide network of publishing houses, representing great composers from centuries past and the most important writing today.

Our international offices include the UK-based Chester Music and Novello & Co; G. Schirmer and AMP in the USA; Edition Wilhelm Hansen in Copenhagen; and UME in Madrid.

The history of our catalogue spans Igor Stravinsky, Jean Sibelius, Samuel Barber, John Tavener, Kaija Saariaho, John Corigliano, John Adams, and Philip Glass. Their music is associated with the legendary choreographers and dance luminaries of the present day, such as George Balanchine, Siobhan Davies, Alexei Ratmansky, Martha Graham, Jerome Robbins, Peter Martins, Wayne McGregor, Christopher Wheeldon, and Helgi Tomasson.

Staff at any of our international music offices can offer free advice about repertoire, commissioning or working with one of our composers on existing music, pieces for learning and outreach work, and above all a friendly, creative dialogue.
