German musician who mastered both modern and classical music. He was pressured to flee to Brazil during Globe War II due to the Nazi threat. His musicality was influenced by virtuoso Eugen d’Albert who noticed potential within the young man after hearing him play when Henry was six. He was a prolific composer whose pre-1933 function was largely damaged through the reign from the Nazis. His mom and his sister passed away in 1943 while imprisoned in the Auschwitz focus camp. He was qualified in early stages by many important music artists, including Artur Schnabel.
