South Tyrol: Land of Conversations

Gottfried Veit, Johanna Heißl and a database member

At the end of March 2022, a delegation of the “Verein für Musikinformation” (Association for Music Information), the operator of the musicainfo.net sheet music database, visited our delivery partner in South Tyrol, Musik Walter in Bolzano. Helmut Schwaiger, einer der Gründer des Vereins und Johanna Heißl in der Funktion als Schatzmeisterin suchten Kontakt zu Vereinsmitliedern und Personen, die sich für die Notendatenbank interessieren. Südtirol wurde somit vom Land der Berge zum Land der Gespräche. They were able to take away some ideas and exchange information.

It was a special pleasure to welcome the doyen of the South Tyrolean music scene and composer Gottfried Veit. He has been a member and supporter of our association for many years and his works are also comprehensively included in www.musicainfo.net. On this occasion Gottfried Veit presented his current CD “Laudate Dominum“, which contains four masses from his extensive oeuvre.

It was the first event of its kind after the long period of quarantine by Corona. It was refreshing and stimulating to finally discuss and talk shop face to face again. If you too would like to organise a visit by a delegation from our association, we would be happy to come. A bandmasters’ meeting, an information event, a musicians’ meeting, we are happy to support such events.
