Henry had a record of Glenn Gould playing Bach, and he helped me hear Gould muttering as he played.

I was surprised to run into Henry here in Seattle in the 90's - he was a pulmonologist, and as I am a family doctor, we saw each other professionally occasionally after that although we practiced in different parts of town.

He was a very good doctor and a very kind and compassionate person.

Henry was a good friend in high school, in a group that also included Richard Goldberg, Michael Oest, Jon Kugelman, Jessica Lobel, and me.  He was fascinated by all things German, but by the music most of all, which he taught us to appreciate principally by the example of his own enjoyment.  Unfortunately I lost track of him after graduation, but found him years later practicing medicine in Seattle.  We arranged to have lunch during one of my visits to the city not long before his death.  It was a good visit and I'm very glad it happened.
