Ever since its foundation, G. Henle Publishers has received lavish praise, recognition and most importantly valuable suggestions from musicians around the world. Amongst them are very prominent artists. As an example, here is a passage from a letter sent by Maestro Evgeny Kissin:
“I would like to congratulate from the bottom of my heart everybody who works or has worked for this wonderful publishing company and to express my gratitude for everything they have done and continue to do. I'm convinced that many musicians will join me in saying how useful and valuable your work is. May the G. Henle Verlag prosper continuously – for the benefit and joy of so many musicians and music lovers!
