Theodor Rättig



Theodor Rättig started his firm in Vienna in 1878, and led a quiet existence publishing mainly works for male chorus. However, there was one exception, Bruckner's 3rd Symphony. Bearing in mind the length of Bruckner’s symphonies, and the composer's tendency to make several revisions even after first publication, one symphony by this composer provided the publisher with as much business as five by any other composer. Later, a branch of Theodor Rättig opened in Leipzig in 1897. Bought by Robert Lienau ca. 1910.
