The delegation from Tritó
is back from the Frankfurt Musikmese,
which began on 6 April. Although attendance was lower than in revious years – the crisis is also affecting music, unsurprisingly – we were able to strengthen ties with our regular customers and suppliers and create new partnerships. As every year, the direct contact with our suppliers proved very positive, on seeing what novelties they have in store and making new agreements. Particular mention should be made of Barenreiter
, Ut Orpheus
from Italy, Walhall
, from Germany, the prestigious Oxford University Press
, and Music Sales
, also from England. There were also Spanish publishing companies present at the fair: Boileau, Clivis, Piles
. As a novelty, and thanks to the efforts of Soledad Sánchez,
from our commercial department,
and Toni Cruanyes,
from the editorial department
Tritó will begin to distribute for the publishers Faber Music
. Many other publishers asked us to act as distributors for them in Spain, and we are working on this at the present time.
This year, the Frankfurt Musikmesse presented some interesting developments in the areas of sheet music editing software (which we'll discuss in another post), editorial policies, new collections, and so on. We noted a general trend towards editions for didactic and pedagogic purposes, many partitioned editions and a greater preference for publications in parts.
