Schott Journal: New Look of the Customer Magazine

Exactly 50 years ago in the autumn of 1966, the Schott publishing house launched a customer magazine presenting new works and products. The ‘Schott-Kurier’ consisted of four pages printed in black and white and was written in German, and therefore only distributed within Germany. Nowadays, our customer magazine has long been bilingual and involves a collaboration of our editors across the world in Mainz, London, Tokyo and New York. The journal is sent to musicians and programmers in over 50 countries and its 20 to 24 pages are devoted not only to new publications and premieres, but also to particularly fascinating works from our back catalogue, united under specific themes.

Schott Journal – News for Music Makers

Today you have received our first magazine with a new look. We have overhauled our layout, restructured our topics and created a special column for children’s music in concert and onstage entitled ‘Children’s Corner’. ‘Schott aktuell’ has been renamed Schott Journal – News for Music Makers. Our goal is to provide even better, more clearly organized and more interesting information on the latest news from Schott.
