On October 1, 2019, Editio Musica Budapest Zeneműkiadó marked the occasion of World Music Day by joining the GVIDO digital music score display system.
Using digital paper display technology on a device comprised of two large, connected screens, GVIDO allows users to view digital music scores in a way like never before.
The system works through an online music store that allows users to purchase and download high-quality musical scores which can be organized into digital lists and notated using a special pen exclusive to GVIDO’s device. Pages can be turned by touch or using a blue-tooth pedal, and the two screens allow for different page-turning modes.
The GVIDO store offers an ever-expanding selection of sheet music from many music publishers around the world. GVIDO equipment and accessories (leather case, page-turning pedal) can be also ordered from our publishing office.
Thousands of visitors from all over the world are expected to attend Music China 2019, and Editio Musica Budapest is happy to return to Shanghai this year from October 10−13.
We will present the best of our publications, both bestsellers and new editions, at our booth in hall E5 stand G21.
We hope to see you at this fantastic musical event!
Editio Musica Budapest is proud to announce the release of the extended and revised edition of Zoltán Kodály: Choral Works for Mixed Voices.
Seventy-five years after their first release, the time has come for Kodály’s collected choral works for mixed voices to appear in a completely new, expanded edition. This collection contains six compositions that were not included in earlier editions. It is printed in a slightly larger format than previous editions and is available in a hardcover version as well as a softcover version for practical purposes. We whole-heartedly recommend the canvas-bound edition to libraries, collectors, and Kodály enthusiasts alike.
This is the most complete and most authentic collection of Kodály’s mixed choruses to date, and it contains new easily-legible music scores and an informative epilogue written by Péter Erdei.
More information on the publications can be found here.
In 1845 Franz Liszt embarked on a project to compose an Italian opera based on Lord Byron’s tragedy, Sardanapalus (1821). It was central to his ambition to attain status as a great European composer. But he abandoned it half way through, and the music he completed has lain silently for 170 years. Editio Musica Budapest will shortly publish the first edition of this score, edited and critically reconstructed by David Trippett (University of Cambridge). Read more...

Embrace Music — That is the motto we have adopted this year. In other words, we want to help you to make music an integral part of your life.
Music is all around us these days; it stimulates us more intensely and prevalently than ever before. But do we relate to it passively or actively? Are we merely consumers or makers of music as well?
We at EMB know that making music brings joy. That joy is multiplied and shared by playing to others. What’s more, making music develops individual values, such as concentration, openness, sensitivity, collaboration, and concern for others.
Our aim is to allow as many people of all ages to experience the wonder and value of music.
