Editio Musica Budapest



Editio Musica Budapest (EMB) is the Hungarian music publisher formerly known as the Hungarian State Music Publisher.

This state-owned firm was installed by the communist government on July 1st 1950 under the name of Zeneműkiadó Vállalat by liquidation of most private music publishers, such as Rózsavölgyi & Co., Magyar Kórus Publishers, Nádor, Csárdás, etc. In 1953 the name was changed into Editio Musica Budapest and cooperations with international music publishers began. In 1994 the firm was privatised again, renamed as Editio Musica Budapest Zeneműkiadó KFT. It was subsequently sold to Ricordi and ultimately absorbed by Bertelsmann (BMG). In 2004, BMG sold EMB to Universal Music Publishing Group.
