He was the composer of an opera, The Scarlet Letter, which was very well received at its premiere by the Opera Department of the Indiana University School of Music in the early 1960s. He is also known for composing the signature music for All India Radio in 1936. The tune is still broadcast as the opening sequence of AIR stations across India. Kaufmann died in 1984 in Bloomington.
