Steinberg to unveil Dorico in October events in London, Vienna, and online


Dorico, the long-awaited music notation software by Steinberg, will be presented in special public showcases in a couple weeks’ time.

Called “An Introduction to Dorico — Where Great Things Begin,” the events will feature demonstrations of the software and performances of compositions created with Dorico.


The first event will be in London on October 18, 2016 at 7:00 pm at Bush Hall. Steinberg’s Daniel Spreadbury will demonstrate Dorico, and the chamber group Ensemble Perpetuo will premiere a short piano quintet by Thomas Hewitt Jones, according to Daniel’s Making Notes blog.

Later in the same week, a German-language event will take place in Vienna on October 20, 2016 at 7:00 pm at the Synchron Stage. At that event, the presentation will be given by Steinberg’s Sebastian Mönch, and the Radio String Quartet will premiere a new composition.

Invitations have been extended to the public, but those wishing to attend must register in advance, here:

The London event will also be streamed live on Steinberg’s Facebook and YouTube channels.

Beyond saying that the software will be released in the fourth quarter of 2016, Steinberg has not yet announced an official release date for Dorico. However, in a post from earlier this week, Daniel said that his post was “the final installment of the Dorico development diary before the first version of the software is released.”

    Philip, are you going?!?! I can’t think of a better excuse to go to London right now!

      Hi Kelly! If my schedule permitted, I would have gladly made the journey. Instead, I’ll have to settle for setting my calendar for 2 pm local time to watch online.

    Hi Philip,
    Will you send me 2 tickets, one for London and the other to Vienna. Won’t you?
    No, too far away for me, because I am an Aussie boy. But for sure, me and my friends will be online.

      Ha ha, I’ll send those airline tickets right away :-)
