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.
