The Barenreiter Study Score Reader.; Free.

Scores of more than 40 of the greatest works of music history are now available for iPad through the Barenreiter Study Score Reader.

The app was developed to make the Barenreiter Urtext brand available digitally. For this, the format of the Barenreiter study scores was transferred to the iPad at almost the same size. The app presents the music text from the study scores, which meet the latest demands, at crystal clear, high resolution. It's possible to add your own annotations, and simple navigation allows for rapid page-turning, direct selection of movements and a seamless increasing of size of the music notes. Scholarly introductions provide information about the background, special features and performance practice of each work. The app makes available a tool for interested music lovers, conductors, musicologists and students, bringing all the advantages of an Urtext edition to a tablet.

The Barenreiter Study Score Reader is available for free via the iTunes Store.
