Publishers of Contemporary Music Since 1955


Founded in 1955 by Boston composer John Bavicchi (1922-2012), BKJ Publications has specialized in bringing musicians new music at very affordable prices.In the mid-1960s we became an ASCAP publisher. Our catalog of instrumental and vocal music ranges from studies for student musicians to works for virtuoso professionals, and from solos and chamber music to concert works for symphony orchestra, band, and chorus. Our composers represent a wide variety of contemporary music. Pages with information about each artist are in the menu to the left.


BKJ MUSIC NOW AVAILABLE FROM J W PEPPER:
For the convenience of professionals as well as high school, collegiate, and civic band  and choral directors much of our music is now being distributed by J W Pepper. You will find the BKJ Catalog by clicking this link: BKJ on J W Pepper. Clicking the title of each work will also take you directly to that piece on the J W Pepper website. Searching the Pepper site by composer or composition title will also take you directly to those BKJ offerings. We expect the complete BKJ catalog to be available there by the end of 2020. However, if you wish to order something from us which is not yet on the JW Pepper site please follow the directions shown on the line to the left.

As we begin our 65th year, we are pleased to introduce our newly added composer, Donald F. Wilkins, Chair Emeritus of the Film Scoring Department at Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA. Please visit page 04 for more information about his new composition for Brass Septet, ORICHALCUM MOODS!


ADDITION OF POPULAR MUSIC:
BKJ has begun an expansion beyond the world of chamber and orchestral music with the introduction of some contemporary composers of popular music.  In addition to Chris Peters, we are pleased to welcome another New Hampshire singer/songwriter, Lynda Nelson, to the BKJ family of composers.
