Biographical Note

Hugo Kauder (1888–1972) was an Austrian and American composer and musical pedagogue. A self-taught musician, Kauder's chamber music compositions are contrapuntal and characterized by conservative harmonies and closed scales. Kauder published two works on music theory, Entwurf einer neuen Melodie- und Harmonielehre (Vienna, 1932), and Counterpoint: An Introduction to Polyphonic Composition (New York, 1960). Forced in 1938 to leave Vienna where he was a member of the Konzertverein Orchestra, he settled in New York in 1940 and spent the rest of his career composing and teaching there.

Scope Note

The Hugo Kauder Papers and Addenda includes records, holograph manuscript scores, reproduced manuscript scores, and published scores. Many of the scores reproduced by blueprint process bear holograph revisions or dynamic markings in pen or pencil, and a number of scores are inscribed to Edward E. Lowinsky and his family.

The Kauder Papers are arranged in five series: Series I: Phonograph Records; Series II: Holograph Manuscript Scores; Series III: Reproduction Manuscript Scores; Series IV: Published Music; Series V: Addenda Manuscript Scores and Essays. This collection has been assigned Codex Manuscript #1399.
