The great choral festival EUROPA CANTAT was held this year in Pécs, Hungary, on 24 July to 2 August. The event is justifiably well known worldwide for its standard and its inspiring atmosphere. The festival, held every three years in a different country, presents a colorful cavalcade of programs for those attending it to choose from. The choral festival offered almost 50 workshops for singers, as well as special events for conductors, composers, and the youngest age group of little children.
Editio Musica Budapest, as a partner in EUROPA CANTAT, has published the festival song book, and the scores required by the chorus members for workshops can also be ordered through us. We contributed to the musical expo an exhibition featuring our own catalog and representing several publishers from all over the world.
During the 26th Béla Bartók International Choir Competition (31 July – 3 August, 2014) our publishing house and Kontrapunkt Music Publishing Ltd would like to welcome you to a special event in addition to their traditional exhibition and sheet music fair. Staff members of the publishing houses will talk with composers about new compositions, music publishing and the concert life of choirs at a music round-table talk in the Gallery of the Kölcsey Centre at 4 p.m. on Saturday, 2 August. The choir Lautitia will perform choral works by participating composers, such as Máté Bella, Miklós Csemiczky, Péter Tóth and János Vajda.
During the competition you will be able to browse through the publishers’ sheet music publications while sipping your coffee in the Club of Scores, and will be able to meet and talk with composers and have them sign their published works.
