Effective immediately MELODIE DER WELT administers the music publishing activities of Olaf Höppner’s concert agency and management company WORLD CONCERTS in Braunschweig. Both parties have signed a long term agreement. Belated handshakes were made during Popkomm 2010 in Berlin beneath the eye of the law as can be seen on the photo of the signing.
Says MDW’s A&R manager John Ruhrmann: “We will publish the long running hit “Tanzen” in the newly founded Edition Olaf Höppner World Publishing and we look forward to the next enthralling song from the laboratory of the author and artist Rockstroh. Besides, due to his successful activities as an agent for many well-known artists Olaf Höppner has excellent contacts to the national as well as international music scene.”
And Olaf Höppner, CEO of World Concerts and World Publishing adds: “We are fully convinced of Melodie der Welt’s administrative services and publishing guidance. In view of the many compilation releases and exploitation fields of the music of our authors like ROCKSTROH we need a dedicated partner in the back office.”
