About us

Musicians throughout the world are excited about our blue Urtext editions – top quality editions of great classical compositions. We also publish complete editions of the works of various composers, musicological literature and catalogues as well as facsimile editions.

More than 80% of our editions are exported.

Urtext and Henle are synonymous, however the term “Urtext” has been debated ever since it was first used. Yet the idea behind it is simple: the musician is offered a musical text which reflects the composer’s intentions. As market leader our catalogue lists over 1.000 “Urtext” editions.

Henle’s quality standards:

  • authoritative musical text
  • markings for practical use

  • superb engraving

  • preface in three languages (German, English, French)

  • critical commentary in two languages (German, English)

  • durability (paper, binding).

    Excellent editions coupled with the best possible customer service – the key to Henle’s success are the people who work for us every day.
