Ludwig Thuille (1861-1907), Tyrolese composer, had a hard struggle against poverty during his youth, but he eventually secured a patron who made it possible for him to enter in 1881 the Munich School of Music, where, among others, he studied under Rheinberger. One of his .fellow students was Richard Strauss.
A scholarship to Frankfurt brought him into contact with Alexander Ritter , who did much to further Thuille's career. In 1883 Thuille was appointed a professor at the Munich School of Music.
As a composer Thuille turned his attention chiefly to opera, but he wrote two or three chamber works of importance.

A Symphony Concert
At the beginning of the year 1791 Haydn paid the first of two visits to London. He was received with immense enthusiasm. Invitations to banquets and dinners were showered upon him, his portrait was painted three times, and the famous Dr. Burney dedicated a poem to him. Finally, Haydn was given an honorary degree by Oxford University.
For this occasion Haydn went to
Oxford, where he attended three concerts, at which three of his symphonies were performed. He took a new symphony with him, but owing to Jack of time for adequate rehearsal, the Symphony in G that had been written for Paris a couple of years previously was substituted -hence it is now known as the ' Oxford ' Symphony.
Bizet's Symphony No. 1, in C, appears to have been entirely forgotten until February 1935, when its first performance was given at Basle by Felix Weingartner. It was probably composed during the time that Bizet was studying under Halevy. Bizet was then about fifteen years of age. The manuscript is preserved in the library of the Paris Conservatoire.
Its four movements are designed on the lines of a classical symphony, and although the composer uses the idiom of his period, there is a striking individuality about the treatment, particularly as regards the orchestration, which is highly original and piquant in the French style.
