Agreement with Net4Music to Distribute Catalogue

18 April 2000

                    DISTRIBUTE CATALOGUE
Wide-Ranging Relationship also Includes EMI Investment in the
                Leading Portal for Musicians

New York, NY (April 18, 2000) -EMI Music Publishing, the
world's largest music publisher, and Net4Music
(, the premier portal for musicians, today
announced that EMI has entered into an agreement with
Net4Music to digitize and globally distribute sheet music in
digital form drawn from EMI's catalogue of over one million
songs.  This precedent-setting agreement will cover the
digital creation, licensing and marketing of EMI's catalogue
of digital sheet music.  As part of this relationship, EMI is
set to take a minority equity position in Net4Music.

'Net4Music's vision of empowering musicians through Internet
technology and making copyright protection a cornerstone of
their business model fits perfectly with EMI's vision for the
digital distribution of music,' said Martin Bandier, CEO of 
EMI Music Publishing.

'This is an important step in the development of Net4Music as
we strive to have the most comprehensive selection of
digitized downloadable sheet music,' said Claude Poletti,
Chairman of Net4Music.  'EMI's broad catalogue encompasses
many genres, from pop to country.  We are extremely pleased
that EMI is working with Net4Music and our technology to
achieve their objectives.'

Net4Music was founded in 1995 in France as Interactives
Musiques Companie by Claude Poletti, the director of a number 
of music academies and chamber music festivals and the president 
of the Association of Music Academies in France.  Last year, the
name of the company was changed to Net4Music to better reflect 
the company's future using the Internet.

Net4Music expanded its operations to include the U.S. and
added key members of its management team, whose collective
resume includes BMI Music, Showtime Networks, Nat Systems,
Citibank and GeoCities.

In December 1999, Net4Music launched its comprehensive portal
for musicians, featuring digitized downloadable sheet music
and MIDI files and offering immediate and secure access to
over 40,000 titles initially.  Net4Music's state-of-the-art
copyright protection technology virtually eliminates piracy
and unauthorized distribution of product.  The site also
features content written by musicians and educational
components for musicians of all levels.  Net4Music offers
content in five languages and the ability to purchase in 22
