The Hans Werner Henze Foundation mourns the loss of business graduate Michael Wagner (1957-2024), member of the Board of the Hans Werner Henze Foundation from 2023-2024.

The website of the Hans Werner Henze Foundation was launched in September 2013 and, after years of work, is now experiencing a major update with a completely revised design and many new, previously unpublished articles, information about Hans Werner Henze and the Foundation's work, as well as an extensive picture gallery.

A collaboration with the Gustav Mahler Research Centre in Toblach and the musicology department of the University of Innsbruck began in 2019: A composition workshop was set up under the direction of institute director Federico Celestini and composer Stefan Hakenberg, inspired by Henze's similar initiatives in Montepulciano, Deutschlandsberg and Munich.

This recording was made during a series of concerts in November 2022 in the Mozarteum Orchestra's Orchestra House. The oldest piece by Henze, Konzertmusik (concert music) from the war winter of 1943/44, is a premiere recording.

In a series of concerts, conductor Marco Angius performed and recorded three pieces by Henze with the Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto and three emerging soloists. These pieces are "reinventions", i.e. instrumentations, orchestrations and variations of compositions by great masters of the 18th century.

Ingeborg Bachmann wrote "Die Zikaden" in 1955, when she was just 29 years old. It was her first radio play for the NWDR in Hamburg. The music was composed by Hans Werner Henze.
