G. Alsbach & Co.
The company was founded by Carl Georg Alsbach (1830-1906) in 1866. In 1998, G. Alsbach & Co purchased Brix von Wahlberg, which was another publisher in Rotterdam. Among the many scores added to their collection, the most important were the Dutch compositions. In 1903 his son, Johann Alsbach (1873-1961), took over the publishing house and laid out the groundwork for what would be called the "Dutch Music Archive". This would include almost all the works of Dutch composers published since the 19th century. This collection included almost 14,000 scores from various dutch composers. In 1939 his collection was presented to the Dutch Foundation for Music Interests, where it was later transferred in 1982 to FCA. The music is currently located at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.
