About

Eugene Zádor was a remarkable colourist and orchestrator whose Hollywood film work was extensive. He described himself as a ‘middle of the road extremist’. The Aria and Allegro is a beautifully crafted work brimming with rhythmic energy. Five Contrasts for Orchestra demonstrates his rich sound world at its most vibrant - film noir jostling with a bigbooted country dance. The lighter A Children’s Symphony is one of his most popular pieces – communicative, witty, accessible. We also hear two small and captivating evocations of his native Hungary.

None of these pieces has been recorded before. Zádor’s music is hugely approachable and exciting, as befits a Hollywood orchestrator. He was great friends with Miklós Rózsa and shares that communicative spirit and sense of colour (in fact he was Rózsa’s own orchestrator).
