Any composer can now join Mahler’s cataloguemain
Universal Edition of Vienna, prime publishers of modernism, have opened their catalogue to any composer who uses their software. If your name begins with B, you could appear somewhere between Bartok and Berio.
The press release explains how:
Composers are currently facing many challenges in the limited classical music market and have to assert themselves against both modern trends and old established ones. At the same time, they must take care of administrative necessities and rights management.
With scodo, Universal Edition has responded to this situation and is opening up the future of music: With this new publishing tool, the Viennese music publisher is offering all composers the opportunity to appear in its globally established catalogue between such renowned composers as Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schönberg, Pierre Boulez, and Arvo Pärt.
The new composers are provided with a new, easy-to-use and flexible web tool for the publication of their sheet music. With just a few clicks, music makers can publish a new work at any time, which can be obtained worldwide via the Universal Edition website. All sheet music published via scodo can not only be distributed printed but also digitally via UE now.
Universal Edition, the music publisher with a success story spanning more than 100 years, is thus keeping its finger on the pulse of the time and offers the entire range of modern music distribution. With scodo, a long-standing demand on the music market is now being met. The publishing tool sets a milestone for music publishing with the help of digitalisation.
