The Günter Henle Foundation and the Horizon Foundation are to support the Sir András Schiff Performance Programme for Young Pianists. The foundations will assume patronage for the first four years of Kronberg Academy’s new study programme for pianists focusing on chamber music, thus covering tuition fees for the first two students.

In addition, G. Henle Verlag is kindly donating sheet music for its entire catalogue of piano repertoire. Felix Henle, Chairman of the Board of the Günter Henle Foundation and board member of the Horizon Foundation, and Dr Wolf-Dieter Seiffert, Managing Director of G. Henle Verlag, handed over the donation of scores weighing 216 kg in the presence of Sir András Schiff. The music comprises 706 Urtext editions from 55 composers and represents the entire publishing programme for piano solo and duet notated as originally intended, including pocket scores.
