The mission of Promethean Editions is to bring the fire of new, fresh and exciting contemporary music to performers and audiences throughout the world. Promethean Editions is a member of the Music Publishers Association (UK), and a Publisher Member of APRA/AMCOS.
A Greek legend tells how the demigod Prometheus stole fire from the Gods and brought it to mankind in order that they might establish civilisation. Subsequently Zeus took vengeance on Prometheus for his cunning, condemning him to be bound in chains for eternity and sending an eagle to feed upon his immortal liver!
Promethean Editions was established in 1996 with the mission of bringing the fire of new, fresh and exciting contemporary music to performers and audiences throughout the world. Today we publish, promote and market music by emerging and established composers in the global market-place.
Key strategies include the publication of sheet music and services to composers (management, music typesetting and administration of music hire and facsimile score publication).
Promethean Editions are intended primarily for performance. Scores and parts are sturdy and easy to use: durable outside, clearly and sensibly laid out within.
Music is engraved using either Music Press (Graphire) or Finale (MakeMusic!). Music Press is a high-end expert music typesetting software package whose output is comparable to the finest classical hand engraving, and custom fonts and spacing are employed in Finale to achieve clean and stylish scores.
