Kurt Dorfmüller passed away

Dr. phil. Kurt Dorfmüller
* April 28, 1922  † June 16, 2017

Kurt Dorfmüller has been tied to G. Henle Publishers over many decades as an important Beethoven scholar and in his leading position at RISM (Répertoire International des Sources Musicales). We owe two substantial publications to him as an editor: the 1979 published volume “Beiträge zur Beethoven-Bibliographie” and as the pinnacle of his oeuvre, the 2000 page long, cutting-edge Beethoven Catalogue of Works. He was able to attend the festivities celebrating the publication of the catalogue as a co-editor in 2014 in good health and clear mind in his former place of activity, the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.
We bid farewell with immense gratitude and grief.
