Michael Zadora was born in New York City on June 14, 1882.
His initial piano instruction was under his father, but in 1899, Zadora moved to
Paris and studied at the Conservatoire. Later he worked with both Busoni and
Leschetizky. A succesful performer and composer, Zadora also began his teaching
career in Lwow, Poland in 1910. This led to a brief tenure in 1913-14 at the
Institute of Musical Art in New York. Some of Zadora's compositions were
published under the pseudonym of Pietro Amadis. Zadora died in New York City on
June 30, 1946.
