G. Henle Publishers stands for Urtext sheet music of the highest quality. Musicians around the world, both amateurs and professionals, can fully rely on our sheet music of what is called “classical music”. Our Urtext editions not only provide the undistorted and authoritative musical text but are also aesthetically pleasing, optimised for practical use and extremely durable. And then there is the strong, distinctive blue profile: (almost) all of our Urtext editions are bound in the characteristic blue cardboard.
Ever since Günter Henle founded our publishing house, we have concentrated almost exclusively on the scholarly preparation of Urtext editions of music from the Baroque onwards. This is why, as the world's undisputed market leader, we have the greatest knowledge about Urtext and the most comprehensive Urtext catalogue, comprising over 1,250 titles to date. Our much-respected blog, written by the editorial department, discusses interesting specialist issues concerning Urtext every other week. In 2020 all of our blog posts will be dealing with “Beethoven”.
