Welcome to the Hugo Kauder Society
Headed to New York City
The Hugo Kauder Society will travel to the Bard College Graduate Center in NYC on June 21st to participate in MakeMusicNY: A live, free musical celebration across New York City.
We will be premiering Hugo Kauder's trio no. 4 for Piano/Harpsichord, Violin, and Cello with performers from around the world who have come to New Haven as refugees. The piece will be performed on Piano, Guitar, and Oud to reflect the performer's expertise.
Connected through Integrated Relocation and Immigrant Services (IRIS), we've come together to celebrate one another on a day that is available to all.
Hugo Kauder was a mid-century Viennese composer, pedagogue, and émigré to America, who defied the atonal trend of his generation with his uniquely harmonic, contrapuntal style. His legacy of over 300 works, many yet to be published, is receiving renewed interest today.
The Hugo Kauder Society hopes to share Kauder's music with the next generation of musicians and listeners. Its annual competition supports emerging young musicians while connecting them with Kauder's work.
