Sibelius 5 Wins Electronic Musician Magazine Editors’ Choice Award
Lauded as “the perfect notation software”
Walnut Creek, CA, January 10, 2008 – Sibelius today announced that Sibelius® 5 has been selected as a winner of the 16th annual EM Editors' Choice Awards in the “Music Notation Software” category.
“We listen to our customers very carefully and try to address their needs both as musicians and as music educators. In Sibelius 5 we’ve aimed to improve the experience of writing and publishing music, and also to create exciting, innovative new features to help people teach and learn music in the classroom,” said Jeremy Silver, General Manager of Sibelius Software. “We’re thrilled to receive this award from Electronic Musician magazine.”
To be eligible for an Editors’ Choice Award, products must have shipped between October 1, 2006, and October 1, 2007. All of the winning products were field-tested by EM's editors and a select group of authors.
The award winners were included in the January 2008 issue of the magazine where Sibelius 5 was described as, “Packed with loads of great-sounding samples, new fonts, and creative composer's tools, Sibelius 5 is a composition powerhouse ideal for anyone working with standard notation.” The description of Sibelius 5 in EM concluded with “We’ve heard music professionals call Sibelius 5 ‘the perfect notation program,’ and we’d be hard-pressed to find fault with that statement.”
