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.

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 use the order from in the left menu.
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. Please visit the Lynda Nelson page for information on her song Momma Said. You may also view and purchase the music and/or listen to a performance on J.W. Pepper.
