Emilio is an alumnus of the Sundance Music Lab and BMI’s conductors’ lab. He was honored to have composed the main exhibit piece for New York’s Jewish History Museum.
From a European family that fled to Argentina during the war and having trained on classical piano from an early age, Emilio combined his love of classical music, Latin rhythms and tango into a palette of rich and unique musical colors.
Kauderer started his studies on classical music, piano and conducting at the Kiev Tchaikovsky Conservatory, and then continued for three years at the Gnesina College of Music in Moscow. He speaks fluent English, Spanish and Russian.
