how we do it

Our Philosophy

Our team has been working on music project for over 30 years for publishing houses in Germany and abroad. One of our goals is to provide performing materials for big music projects in Germany, Austria, Russia, USA, South Korea and so on. Up to now we could work with well-known theatres and conductors: Valery Gergiev / Mariinsky Theatre and Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, Kent Nagano / Bavarian State opera house, Christian Thielemann / Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Simon Rattle / Berlin Philharmonics. At the moment we provide notation in two main applications on the market: Sibelius and Score4 (Finale is to come soon). We can cover nearly all aspect of modern notation with one of these applications. We have been working with Score4 since 1992 and Sibelius since 2003. Operas and Ballets, Orchestra music and Complete Editions scores were created with either application.
