Welcome to The Hinrichsen Foundation's website

The Hinrichsen Foundation is a charity devoted to the promotion of music.

It was founded in 1976 by Mrs Carla Eddy Hinrichsen to ensure the continuation of the tradition established by the Hinrichsen family as the proprietors of Edition Peters the music publishers, established more than 200 years ago in the German city of Leipzig. Since the amalgamation of the post-war branches of Edition Peters in 2011, the Hinrichsen Foundation has been a major shareholder in the company, and its income derives from the company's profits.
