About Editions Musica Ferrum
Editions Musica Ferrum was founded in Greece by award-winning composer and performer Nikolas Sideris with the intention of funding interesting composers and publishing fascinating and accessible works for piano. Moving to the UK in 2015, the publisher’s reputation has grown to the point that EMF titles are now regularly included on exam syllabus lists. Having published the works of nearly 300 contemporary composers, it is considered the go-to publisher for modern composers for the piano.
