Summary
Early twentieth-century composer Hugo Kauder set out to revolutionize the course of classical music composition through the fusion of modern and fifteenth- and sixteenth-century compositional devices. His natural approach to melodic writing, based on the harmonic overtone series, includes omitting bar lines in his scores, writing segmental non-modulating passages, employing frequent recitation tones, and exploiting long unobstructed phrases. The use of his double scale, pentatonicism, eastern elements, and folk melodies and rhythms add a spice to the otherwise holistic sonorities. Described as "Neo-Medieval" and "Hindemith-like," Kauder compositions not only offer a unique addition to a recital program, but often provide a musical style of which flutists rarely have the opportunity to study or perform. This document will analyze Hugo Kauder's compositional style, techniques, and influences evident in his chamber works for flute. The perfomer's editions of the Trio No. 2 for Flute, Oboe, and Horn, the Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano, and the Trio for Flute, Horn, and Piano help to illustrate the hurdles in playing these pieces and facilitate solutions that enable successful performances.
