Michael Zadora

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.
