From June 2015 Bärenreiter Praha s. r. o. has a new Editor-in-Chief in the person of PhDr. Eva Velická, PhD.
She has taken over the job and competencies of the previous Editor-in-Chief Annette Thein, whom we would like to thank for her many years of dedicated work for our Prague publishing house. We trust that under the direction of Eva Velická, who will be stationed directly in Prague, the editorial staff and planning of the Czech publisher will be provided with continuity and with new impulses both for our current projects and for the enrichment and further development of our future publishing programme.
