Schumann Anniversary 2010

In 2010 the world of music celebrated the 200th birthday of the composer Robert Schumann. To mark this occasion, our CEO Wolf-Dieter Seiffert wrote around 25 essays dedicated to his idol and also one of G. Henle Publishers’ “household deities”. Every fortnight, essays predominantly concerning Schumann’s works for various settings and from different genres appeared, as well as numerous interviews with notable Schumann artists and editors of his works, interesting links, etc. There is even a personal letter addressed to Mr Schubert himself among them. We believe that these contributions are well worth reading, even after the event, particularly since they are not purely academic but written in a more relaxed, journalistic manner. Why not browse through them yourself!
