It’s called Music Reader
and it may be the format that definitively pensions off the traditional score and parts in paper. And there’s really no doubt it has many advantages:
The musical notes are visualised on a tablet PC
type of screen that can be placed on the music stand while the pages are turned with an accessory pedal
. Another advantage that also affects the publishing companies is that it permits the introduction of corrections in real time
by the musicians, and also various annotations.
Naturally Music Reader is not the only initiative in this direction. Another device on the market with similar characteristics is MusicPad Pro
We will have to wait and see what happens but what’s for sure is that the digital revolution is arriving everywhere and classical music is no exception.
