Welcome to the Hugo Kauder Society
New Kauder Scholarship
Esteemed Musicologist, Author, & Lecturer, Dr. Karin Wagner, has published an article entitled,
The Hugo Kauder Society extends its congratulations and a thank you to Dr. Wagner for continuing to deepen our understanding of Hugo Kauder the composer, philosopher, and person.
More of Dr. Wagner's essays can be found here.
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.
