Musikmesse 2011 Live Blog

Reading time: 3 min. Musikmesse

UE is at the Musikmesse, the world’s largest music exhibition, from this Wednesday to Saturday.

Come and see us in Hall 3.1, Stand C42.

We’ll be posting updates on this page during the week, as well as on Twitter.

Day three at the Frankfurt Music Fair, and we’ve already had visitors from Sweden, Italy, China and Germany at the stand. Come and see us in Hall 3.1.

10:30 Here are a few of the things our retailers have been impressed with:

Mike Cornick’s Play the Piano.
New editions in our Study Score Series, for example Birtwistle’s Silbury Air.
World Music Tango Duets for violin or for cello.
New Podgornov Piano Albums.
New Mahler conductors’ scores and study scores, and our new edition of piano arrangements.
New Kurt Weill editions, like the Songs for Saxophone Quartet or for Cello.

... and lots of gems hidden in the catalogue that we sometimes forget!

12:30 Andreas Kolb, chief editor of the Neue Musikzeitung, talks to Mike Cornick about his new piano tutor for adults, Play the Piano.

13:00 Lunch break

13:30 Here's UE Director Stefan Ragg with his guest from the People’s Music Publishing House in China.

16:00 There’s continued and intensive interest in the facsimile edition of Boulez’ Tombeau. It’s interesting to see people stop and look and then ask what it is …

(these gents gave us permission to use their photo)

18:00 The end of day 3 at the Musikmesse. That’s all for today. The fair is open to the general public tomorrow, so come along and see us in Hall 3.1 C42. And remember to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

That’s all from the live blog this week!


Day two, and the stand is already full of guests. Looking forward to lots of meetings with our retail partners from all over the world.

11:00 UE receives the Best Edition Prize for our facsimile edition of Pierre Boulez' Tombeau, produced together with the Sacher Foundation.

12:00 PureSolo.com founder John Thirkell joins us at the UE stand. We distribute a range of play along editions on the PureSolo platform. Register, download and record your own version of our world music titles, and many many more. [nbsp]

15:00 Composer Mike Cornick has just joined us at the UE stand. We’ve just released his new book Play the Piano, a step-by-step guide for beginners and “returning beginners”.

18:00 The end of another busy day here at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt. Back tomorrow.

The doors are open! Everything is ready, and we're enjoying the calm before the storm.

09:30[nbsp]... and it doesn't last long. Our colleagues are already talking to customers, and we have the best coffee at the Musikmesse.

10:30 Carolin Jetter and Wolfgang Meyer-Johanning from Musikalienhandel.de join our colleague Albert Fassbender at the UE stand.

12:30 There's a lot of interest in our video presentations. A curious juxtaposition of Gustav Mahler interviews and Richard Filz demonstrating vocal percussion. That's UE.

16:00[nbsp]UE composer Vykintas Baltakas was at the NMZ stand here in Frankfurt for an interview, available soon at www.nmz.de.

17:00 Here's Vykintas with our managing director Astrid Koblanck at the UE stand

18:00 And that's all for today. It was busy at the UE stand. Come and see us here in Frankfurt until Saturday this week.
