In November 2017, Kadja Grönke and Michael Zywietz organised a three-day symposium on the "Status and perspectives of musicological homosexuality research". Four lectures focussed on the life and work of Hans Werner Henze.

Concert music of 1944: The manuscript of Hans Werner Henzes opus 1: Concert music for solo violine and small chamber orchestra was handed over by Sibylle Stier to the Hans Werner Henze-Foundation in September 2017. The convocation of the parties to the Labor service and military service in January 1944 had at that time prevented a world premiere.

On 26 July, Elena Minetti and Michael Kerstan will present the 2nd Italian edition of Henze's autobiography, Canti di Viaggio. Una vita, this time in Rimini as part of the Sagra Musicale Malatestiana, the large music festival of Emilia Romagna. Afterwards there will be a performance of El Cimarrón with Italian musicians and the American baritone Nicholas Isherwood.

Five years after Hans Werner Henze's death, a large part of his artwork has been made accessible to the public for the first time. We owe this to the enthusiasm of the Cantiere's artistic director, Roland Böer.

On 28 March, the editors Elena Minetti, Gastón Fournier Facio and Michael Kerstan will present the 2nd Italian edition of Henze's autobiography Canti di Viaggio. Una vita in Milan with a lecture and photo presentation. They had been invited by the Friends of the Teatro alla Scala di Milano, who reside in the spacious villa of Signora Anna Crespi Morbio just behind the opera house, and were attended by an interested and enthusiastic audience.

The the Research Centre for Music and Gender at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Mediasymposium is organising a symposium on 3 February 2017 under the direction of Antje Tumat.entitled “Gesellschaft. Gender. Gesang. Hans Werner Henze's music theatre and The English Cat”.
