Ludwig Böhm was born in Munich, where he studied English, French and Spanish and was a teacher from 1981 to 1983. Inspired by a great exhibition in the Munich Municipal Museum in 1981 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the death of his great-great-grandfather Theobald Böhm (flautist, composer, flute-maker and inventor of the Böhm flute), he dedicated his life to keeping the memory of Theobald Böhm alive. As a result of more than 30 years of research, in 2012 he published all 88 compositions and arrangements by Theobald Böhm (in collaboration with Raymond Meylan), and in 2013 he published a series of books about him. He travelled to flute festivals in Japan, Australia, USA, the Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Italy, Croatia, Luxembourg, Slovenia, China, Great Britain, Iceland, Thailand, Portugal, Chile, Austria, Poland, Armenia, South Korea, the Czech Republic and Taiwan to present a slide lecture about Theobald Böhm. He organized the International Theobald Böhm Competition for Flute and Alto Flute in Munich (2006, 2011 and 2016). He is the president of the Theobald Böhm Archive, the Theobald Böhm Society and the Theobald Böhm Foundation.
