Pauer, Max



Son of the preceding. Born at London. His proficiency as a pianist is due to his father's training, but he studied theory and composition under Vincenz Lachner at Carlsruhe from 1881 to 1885. Then for two years he appeared at concerts in Germany, Holland and England, spending considerable time in London. In 1887 he became teacher of piano at the Cologne Conservatory, changing in 1897 to Stuttgart. Since 1893 he has been pianist to the Grand Duke of Hesse. In 1898 received the title of professor from the King of Wurtemburg. Besides writing music for the piano he has edited a new edition of the Klavierschule by Lebert and Stark, and has arranged Mozart's and Haydn's symphonies for two and four hands.
