Answering to my own question: Pause music, turn the screen off (or first on if it was off and then off again) from power button for a while and then back on. Now you should be able to control notification sound settings when pressing volume key. If volume keys still control playback volume instead of notifications, turn the screen off again and wait a little bit longer before turning it back on. With this method you don't need to close the music app to control notifications.

I haven't found any way to change notification settings (silent/priority/sound) in Xperia Z2 when listening music or if music app is running after listening music. I have tried with different music apps (Walkman, Google Music, Spotify) and problem is present with all music apps. This problem came with Android 5.0 (Lollipop) upgrade. If I want to change notifications, I have to stop the music and close the music app. With KitKat I could just press the power button longer and get the notification settings, but not anymore with Android 5.0. There is a fix for this in Android 5.1, but I haven't found any information if there will be updates to 5.1. So has anyone found a way to change settings while music app running or do I have to hope and wait Android 5.1 upgrade? Cheers, Janne Edit 2015-04-22: Add "Resolved" prefix to subject.
