Critical Reconstruction of Liszt’s Opera Sardanapalo Will Be Published
March 26, 2018
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.

Sing ‒ Oscar-winning Hungarian short film with music by Árpád Balázs, Lajos Bárdos and Leó Weiner
February 28, 2017
Director Kristóf Deák’s Sing
(entitled Mindenki ‒ Everyone
‒ in Hungarian) has won the 2017 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film. It covers in 25 minutes the personal relations, humiliations, rebellions and daily conflicts that must be resolved even in childhood, through a story involving a school choir and the teacher who heads it. Alongside the roles of a little girl, her friend, and the teacher, there is another leading part in the film, played by the music. The story gains life and credibility from the choral works Elderflower (Bodzavirág)
by Árpád Balázs, Bullfight (Bikaviadal)
by Lajos Bárdos, and Fox Dance (Rókatánc)
by Leó Weiner.

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.
Welcome to EMB Online, the internet home for Hungary's largest sheet music publisher. For over 60 years, we've been publishing and distributing educational publications and performance materials for classical instruments, ensembles, orchestras, voice(s) and choir.
You can buy printed and digital sheet music publications in our new online shop, and send requests for orchestral material for hire.
