“Ut Orpheus Edizioni is a specialized publishing house, founded in Bologna in 1994 with the purpose both to discover and promote the rich Italian and European musical heritage of the past centuries and to propose itself as a vehicle for the diffusion of the contemporary musical culture.
In the past few years Ut Orpheus has rapidly achieved a relevant place among the leading international publishing houses, gaining the praise of some of the most outstanding representatives of musical culture, and establishing non episodic relations with prestigious performers, musicologists and institutions, among whom Riccardo Muti, the Salzburg Festival, the Ravenna Festival, Christopher Hogwood, Kenneth Gilbert, Hopkinson Smith.
Ut Orpheus publishes the Opera Omnia of Luigi Boccherini, Muzio Clementi, Francesco Geminiani, and the complete editions of Alessandro Scarlatti's keyboard works, Claudio Monteverdi's madrigals and sacred music, Johann Sebastian Bach's lute works. It has recently started an important and innovative project aimed at the critical edition in diplomatic transcription of the Ars Nova codices. Starting from 2007, the journal 'Ad Parnassum', now in its seventh year, was included in the 'Musicology initial list' of the European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH). The catalogue gives particular relevance to the music for harp, guitar, recorder and keyboard instruments, as well as to the 20th century repertoire and the new authors, significantly including jazz and ethnic music.
Ut Orpheus Edizioni's catalogue presently houses over 1600 entries and it is distributed worlwide.”
