About

Eugene Zádor, who emigrated from Hungary to the United States in 1939, described his style as ‘exactly between La Traviata and Lulu’. Although some of his works are overtly ‘Hungarian’ in style, for the most part he composed in a cosmopolitan but conservative twentieth-century idiom, firmly grounded in tradition, that is strongly tonal and highly contrapuntal.

The second volume of this series features the richly varied Oboe Concerto and Divertimento for Strings (his most-performed piece) and the composer’s own favourite, Studies for Orchestra which, despite its great profusion of ideas and melodic lines, has a remarkable unity and consistency.
