Claudio Arrau, Yehudi Menuhin, Arthur Rubinstein — the founder of our publishing house Dr. Günter Henle and his wife Anne Liese often invited the most distinguished musicians of the time to their home.
From 1942 to 1979 they kept a guest book. We have now digitalized and transcribed it. In addition we have also compiled several indexes, as well as biographies of the artists who were their guests.
Delve into this treasure trove with its insights into people, dates and relationships. You can view it in its entirety and free-of-charge online.
