International Hugo Kauder Competition to be held Sept. 11
opportunity in New York City.
The distinguished Competition judges are Richard Stoltzman of New England Conservatory,
Joanne Baxtresser of Carnegie Mellon University and Doris Goltzer of New York City Opera.
The Prize Winners Concert will begin at 2 p.m. Sept. 12, at Firehouse 12, 45 Crown St.
The Hugo Kauder Society’s mission is to foster awareness and appreciation for the work of
Viennese composer Hugo Kauder (1888-1972), to create opportunities for emerging musicians to
gain wider exposure, and to provide the audience with the unique opportunity to be present at
premieres of Kauder’s musical works, organizers said in a statement. Hugo Kauder came to the United States as a refugee in 1940 and many of his works have not yet been performed publicly. Several pieces performed in this competition will be world or United States premieres, the statement said.
The public is invited to attend the competition, which is free, as well as the Prize Winners
Concert (suggested contribution $10).
