New Distribution Agreements

Stainer & Bell is delighted to announce new and exclusive worldwide distribution agreements with three specialist publishers of music for stringed instruments — CelloLid, Waveney Music Publishing and Yorke Edition.

Formerly available from Spartan Press, these hugely successful, long-established catalogues are now sold and despatched to the trade and public directly from the Stainer & Bell warehouse in North London. Adding nearly 200 titles to our string music offering, the additional tutors, studies, solos and ensemble titles for violin, viola, cello and double bass perfectly complement our own ever-popular concert, educational and examination publications for strings.

Nina Whitehurst (Waveney Music Publishing) commented: Waveney Music, publisher of the renowned VIOLIN PLAYING and VIOLA PLAYING series of books, is delighted to announce the partnership with Stainer and Bell as its new distributor.

Robert Trory’s VIOLIN PLAYING and VIOLA PLAYING series of tutor books, as well as the Concert Collection for violin and piano, enjoy worldwide appeal with both teachers and pupils. The dynamic new relationship with Stainer & Bell fits perfectly with Waveney Music’s exciting plans for the future!
