Welcome to the Hinrichsen Foundation
It has been decided with much regret that the Foundation is deferring its grant-giving programme for the time being, as a result of uncertainty in world markets in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis. The Trustees will reappraise the situation in January 2022.
The Hinrichsen Foundation is a charity mainly devoted to the promotion of new music.
It was founded in 1976 by Mrs Carla Eddy Hinrichsen to ensure the continuation of the tradition of supporting contemporary music 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. Until 2010 the Hinrichsen Foundation was the beneficial shareholder of Peters Edition Limited, London. 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.
