Young talent: the winners of the Henle piano competition
Dear Reader,
 
166 young pianists between the ages of 6 and 11 took part in our piano competition on YouTube. Their enthusiasm can be clearly seen and heard. Each one of them played a piece from Robert Schumann's "Album für die Jugend" (Album for the Young). A few days ago the prize winners were announced. You can watch the videos of their impressive and fascinating performances » here.
 
In this newsletter you can also find out about our most recent Urtext publications - including a Beethoven fragment that has been completed so it can be performed for the first time - as well as read news from the publishing house and our editorial department.
 
We hope you enjoy reading it!
 
With very best wishes
 
 

Dr. Wolf-Dieter Seiffert

Carl Nielsen's 150th birthday
 
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) is one of Denmark's best-known composers. A violinist and trumpet player, he played in a military band, was a violinist in the Copenhagen Opera Orchestra as well as later becoming a conductor. His compositions are just as diverse. Alongside his popular symphonies, in which he developed his own musical language, he also composed delightful works for chamber music groups. Our three Urtext editions present some of these charming works.
 
His 150th birthday is on 9th June.
