Hugo Kauder (1888–1972) was an Austrian-Jewish composer and music theorist known for his unique harmonic contrapuntal style (i.e. multiple independent melodic lines). His legacy of over 300 works is receiving renewed interest today through the Hugo Kauder Society.

EXILE: In 1938, following the Nazi annexation of Austria, Kauder fled to Holland. Shortly prior to Germany’s occupation of Holland on May 10, 1940, Kauder escaped to England. He then settled in New York in 1940, which remained his home for the rest of his life.
