We shape the future of music. Now.

Universal Edition has always been a house that has opened new horizons for music. With UE now UE is entering a new chapter as a music publisher. Together with Newzik, we take the next step and make our extensive catalogue digitally available. The future has begun.

All sheet music and performance materials of the UE will also be digitally available in the future (see UE now label). Simply select the product of your choice.

2. Connect to Newzik

Once you have chosen a digital product (UE now), the payment process will automatically take you to Newzik, where your purchased product is available for you: on the iPad, iPhone or any device with a web browser (webviewer coming December 2019).

Together

Personal markings in sheet music are important for each musician, whether playing solo or together with others. With UE now you can easily share your markings. This opens up a new dimension of playing music together.

At home. On Stage. Backstage.

UE now is the future for private, as well as professional musicians who play alone, with others or in an orchestra. But UE now also provides valuable backstage services.

Comfortable page-turning with bluetooth foot switch or fingertip, adjust the brightness to the needs of the room, adjust the appearance of the pages to your needs, markings in any number of layers, import music files of any format, build setlists, edit your PDF scores, adjust your MusicXML score layout, read dynamic .txt files, use a digital annotation toolbox, synchronize your music scores with a media file, ...

UE now - in cooperation with Newzik

UE cooperates for UE now with Newzik. Newzik was developed by passionate musicians to make the life of professional musicians easier – whether as soloists in an orchestra – and to enter a new dimension of dealing with sheet music and playing together. Newzik has developed an app that covers all the needs of music professionals and musicians in general.
Universal Edition has closely monitored the development of music readers over the last few years and no other partner has been able to convince us better of what the future of digital music looks like. The enthusiastic feedback of numerous musicians who have already tested Newzik has encouraged us to make our digital offer available today, not tomorrow. Now!

What our customers say

Samo Lampichler
Samo LampichlerLeitung Orchesterbüro, Tonkünstler
"My experience was really great with Newzik. [...] We have the possibility to make the workflows in the orchestra more fluid. In the different places, every musician has his iPad at home and the librarian can send the scores directly to every iPad, so the musicians can rehearse immediately."
Fabienne Voisin
Fabienne VoisinHead of the Orchestre National d’Ile-de-France
"We are thrilled to work with the Newzik Team and be the first symphonic orchestra to be equipped with iPads permanently."
Hyung-ki Joo
Hyung-ki JooComposer, Pianist
"For the travelling musician, Newzik is as essential as the passport and the toothbrush. I consider it to be my most luxury companion item and I can have kilos and pounds of sheet music at the touch of a button. These days, with more and more pianos in airports and train stations, all I need is Newzik and time stands still."
