Ludwig Thuille (1861 " 1907) was an Austrian composer and teacher. Born at Bozen, then part of Tyrol, now in Italy, Thuille lost both his parents in 1872. In 1877 he met the young Richard Strauss; the two became lifelong friends. After studying under Josef Rheinberger in Munich, he became a professor of theory and composition. His many pupils included Hermann Abendroth, Ernest Bloch, Ernst Boehe, Richard Wetz, Paul von Klenau, Rudi Stephan, Walter Braunfels, Henry Kimball Hadley and Walter R. Spalding (who became the head of the Division of Music at Harvard University, co-authored a textbook on harmony with Arthur Foote, and later taught Leroy Anderson).
