About the publishing house

The musical publishing house MUSICA GIOIA was established in 2012 foremost as the author publishing of Eduard Douša, a contemporary composer, pedagogue, and music publicist.

However, the publishing house produces also other titles, e.g. J.S.Bach-A.Marcello: Adagio or Sonata C major for cello and bass by Josef Fiala – a contemporary and a friend of  W.A.Mozart. We also present musical pieces from contemporary Czech authors: Sonatina for flute and piano by Milan Báchorek, Colours of the Rainbow – an album by contemporary Czech women-composers; instructive Piano album by contemporary young Czech authors, or a piano cycle for children Martin’s Sunday by professor Jiří Hlinka who is settled in Norway.

We are successfully presenting the current production of the publishing house presented at different artists’ competitions, seminars, or workshops, e.g. at Prague Junior Note led by professor Ivan Klánský, at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Ostrava, at the Conservatory and Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno, on the summer piano courses in Mikulov etc.

A specific project of the publisher is a non-competitive show Czech piano modern for children which is open for young pianist from the whole Czech Republic. This festival is arranged in cooperation with the society for contemporary music Přítomnost (The Present) and has already been held third time. The guests were composer Luboš Sluka , writer and poet Jiří Žáček  and pianist Ivo Kahánek.

All our published scores are to be found under the heading Catalogue, Preparing or News(Home).
