Thomas Meisel 80 Years

#15 January 2020

On 18th January 2020 Thomas Meisel would have turned 80 years old. Thomas, a great personality in the German music business, passed away in Berlin on May 26, 2014 after serious illness. He left his mark on the German music industry, and with his sense of talent he discovered and promoted nationally and internationally successful composers and performers. Thomas Meisel was born in Berlin on January 18, 1940, as second son of the successful composer and publisher Will Meisel and the chamber singer Eliza Illiard.
At the beginning of the 1960s he founded "Edition Intro" with his five year older brother Peter (died in 2010). They had the right instinct from the beginning, and so pretty soon first hits like "Zwei kleine Italiener" or "Liebeskummer lohnt sich nicht" came out. Later Thomas and Peter took over the Meisel Music publishing company, which had been built up by their father in 1926.
Working with new authors and performers was Thomas Meisel's passion, and he always had a special personal relationship with them. As a producer he worked with Roland Kaiser, Frank Zander, Gunter Gabriel, G.G. Anderson and Mary Roos among others, and could celebrate many achievements with them.
In 1964 Thomas and Peter Meisel founded the Hansa Musikproduktion Berlin together with Christian Bruhn (following American examples) - this was the first independent and stand-alone record company in Germany. Only one year later the Hansa label had its first million seller with "Il Silenzio" by Nini Rosso. This was the basis for numerous productions that were awarded with precious prizes. At the beginning of the 70ies, a major part of the current artists of the German Schlager scene were under contract with Hansa.
International hits were also released on Hansa, for example in collaboration with Frank Farian, Boney M., Eruption and Milli Vanilli and also the first hits of Giorgio Moroder.
The legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin were founded by Thomas Meisel, and in addition to his own productions he made there, artists such as David Bowie, U2, Iggy Pop and Depeche Mode also recorded some of their hits at Hansa Studios. In 1992 he had the „Meistersaal“, the legendary Studio 2- also known as "Big Hall by the wall", extensively restored and made it accessible to the public again as a venue for events.
In recent years, he spent much of his time with his wife Doris and family on his favourite island Sylt.
We fondly remember Thomas as a great publisher, producer and of course as a family member!
Happy birthday, Thomas!

Accurate to the day: 90 years Meisel Musikverlage

#15 May 2016

At the age of 29, Will Meisel already ran a popular pub in the city centre of Berlin and also was a successful composer. Then one day a very precious friend came along – Hermann Schulenburg. He was a lyric writer, composer and publisher, and asked Will Meisel why he wouldn’t want to set up his own music publishing company. „Ick vasteh doch nischt davon“ (But I don’t have a clue about this) Will Meisel replied in his best German. „So what?“ replied Schulenburg: „Die andern doch ooch nischt“ (Neither do the others). That convinced him and so in the backroom of the pub „Jägerkasino“, Will Meisel together with his friend Schulenburg founded the „Edition Meisel & Co. GmbH“. The official set up of the publishing company, the enrollment followed on May 15th 1926. That’s how the story began.
The success story of the Meisel Musikverlage today spans 90 years of Berlin music and entertainment culture, and with a well-proven team we are strongly motivated looking to the future to continue this family owned Berlin publishing house!
