‘The European technology provider Newzik is the Universal Edition guarantor and partner in a stable, secure and user-friendly solution for the real-time distribution of sheet music. Newzik is already in use worldwide and, like us, relies on open technological formats and approaches in order to guarantee the greatest possible independence and flexibility for musicians’.

‘My experiences have been very good. [...] We have the opportunity to make the work processes in the orchestra more fluent. Every musician has their iPad at home and gets the score directly from the library to the device and can rehearse immediately.’
