Among his notable students were Hans Münch and Hermann Suter. He wrote eight symphonies and several concertos. His last years he lived in Minusio in Villa Ginia. He died on 25th December 1921 at Locarno. Huber's first symphony, in D minor, "Tellsinfonie", has a slight programmatic element, derived from the story of the Swiss national hero William Tell.

The symphony is perhaps somewhat similar in style and formal restraint to Brahms, although there is perhaps a foreshadowing of Sibelius in some of the orchestral textures. Between 1894 and 1918 Huber composed five operas. His piano concertos are slightly unusual in that they have four movements (scherzos are included in addition to the usual fast, slow, and fast tempo movements). His opus number 100 is a set of twenty-four preludes and fugues for four hands on piano, in all the keys. Read more on Last.fm.
