Born in Hungary in 1894, Eugene Zádor moved to the USA in 1939 and remained there as a naturalised citizen until his death. He left a sizeable catalogue of works that includes more than 120 film scores, 13 operas and a wide variety of concert music. Zádor has been described as a classicist, a romantic and a modernist all rolled into one, demonstrated by Naxos’ ongoing series of his orchestral music. This now reaches Volume 5 with a programme of works that were all written later in the composer’s life, yet all reflect his Hungarian roots. The new release is introduced by Raymond Bisha.
