American Beethoven Society's Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Creative Scholarship (2007): Susan Kagan, Hunter College


AT THE SECOND BIENNIAL CONVENTION of The American Beethoven Society co-sponsored with The Ira F.

Dr. Kagan has enjoyed a long career as a scholar, pianist, critic, educator, and administrator. She earned her Ph.D. from the Graduate Center of CUNY in 1983. Her dissertation on the music of Archduke Rudolph, Beethoven's only composition student, was published by Pendragon Press in 1988 under the title Archduke Rudolph, Beethoven's Patron, Pupil, and Friend, and quickly became die standard reference guide to the composer s most important patron. She has reviewed sound recordings for Fanfare Magazine since its founding in 1977 and is well-known to members of the Society for her reviews in this Journal. Dr. Kagan taught in the music history program of Hunter College from 1977 until December 2006.
