Firm of music publishers. It was founded by Margot and Walter R. Boelke (b 20 Jan 1905; d 25 Jan 1987) in New York in 1948 and incorporated in 1951. Affiliated to ASCAP, the firm specializes in the publication of contemporary music, and under the general editorship (1952–82) of Jacques-Louis Monod, who succeeded Kurt List, built up a small but important catalogue. Among its composers are Arthur Berger, Lansky, Lerdahl, Perle, Roslawez, Schoenberg, Skrowaczewski, and Claudio Spies. In 1975 a sister company, Mobart Music Publications (an affiliate of BMI) was founded; its composers include Babbitt, Gideon, Ives, Leon Kirchner, Leibowitz, Monod, Pollock, Shifrin, Ben Weber, Webern, Zemlinsky, and Zwilich. The distributor for both companies in the United States and Canada is Jerona Music Corporation, part of the Music Associates of America.
