3. Oboe Concerto
4. Studies for Orchestra

Product Description

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 composers own favourite, Studies for Orchestra, which, despite its great profusion of ideas and melodic lines, has a remarkable unity and consistency. Volume 1 is available on 8.572548.

A WORTHWHILE LISTEN 8 Feb. 2015
By LMG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD, containing a wide variety of music by Eugene Zador, is much more dynamic and pulsating than his other music - "Five Contrasts", "A Children's Symphony", "Aria and Allegro", etc. - to be found on another CD that I reviewed previously on Amazon. Some of the motifs here are even more reminiscent of Miklos Rozsa for whom Zador served as orchestrator for decades. Parts of the "Elegie and Dance" have some of the same bounce and rhythmic vitality to be heard in comparable symphonic music by Rozsa. Indeed, certain sections of the "Divertimento for Strings" brought to mind a partial Rozsa theme from "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes". A few more passages were evocative of Bartok. In the end, of course, it is all Zador going back to his Hungarian roots. Furthermore, his symphonic music has a more contemporary feel since it was composed in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. It deserves a listening.
