Documents associated with this person:

Director ‒ later owner ‒ of the music publishing company B. Schott & Söhne of Mainz.

Franz Schott having died childless, Dr. Ludwig Strecker, from an old Hessian civil service family and unrelated to the Schott family, was appointed joint heir and director of the publishing company, with special responsibility for composers of the Wagner and post-Wagner circles. He was later appointed the company's proprietor (Inhaber). He ran the company to a great age, after which his sons Ludwig Emanuel (1883‒1978) and Willi (1884‒1958) took it over.

Anthony van Hoboken (whose catalog of Haydn's works was later to be published by Schott) reported to Schenker that he met him in August 1928, giving a somewhat unfavorable account of him (OJ 11/54, [24]).
