About us


Ever since its foundation, G. Henle Publishers has received lavish praise, recognition and most importantly valuable suggestions from musicians around the world. Among them are some very famous artists.

Günter Henle was friends with many of the great artists of the time. His autobiography contains wonderful descriptions of his encounters with these distinguished musicians. He also talks about the foundation of his publishing house during a difficult time that lasted up into the 1970s. All those who are interested in history can download all of the biographical documents by Günter Henle free of charge.

Today we continue to maintain close contact with a great many musicians, and, following in Günter Henle’s footsteps, we try to incorporate their advice and make the most of their expertise in our Urtext editions.
