Eugene Zador (1894-1977)

Not expecting much response to this but I can't see a Hungarian composers thread.
I have enjoyed this new Naxos release very much. The Biblical Triptych in particular which reminded me of the music of Ernest Bloch. The works are powerful and approachable with a kind of 'Epic' quality to them - quite inspiriting stuff. Some Naxos releases I play once and never again but not this one which I have enjoyed many times:

"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).

I have that and a few other things.  Enjoyable work.
The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal
