So forget Kodaly? Zoltan Kodaly? How can this be?

Roger,

in case of Hungarian composers well-known in our Western hemisphere, we are used to our way of placing the family name at the back because the sources we are familiar with just do so (CDs, concert programs etc.). However, if you look at Hungarian sources, they are of course also reversing names here. For instance, take a look at the Hungarian wikipedia article about Kodály:
https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kod%C3%A1ly_Zolt%C3%A1n
Thoughout the whole text, he is referred to as "Kodály Zoltán" there! It's just the same with Bartók:
https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bart%C3%B3k_B%C3%A9la

Thank you, That's quite interesting..whooda thunk it? I wonder what other countries do this.
Now I also wonder about Laszlo Lajtha(a very fine composer), and others. maybe this practice sometimes diminished their identity and popularity.

Even more difficult is it with Chinese names.
Standard is Family name followed by given name. The family name is most of the time short.
The given name has not seldom two parts connected by a hyphen.
More and more the hyphen is left out and the two parts are written as one.
In Taiwan they tend do follow our rules.

The Symphonies of Wilhelm Georg Berger (1929 - 1993) are very intense, captivating works indeed and a huge thanks to MVS for his posting.
Would like to see more..
On a cautionary note, be certain there are no sharp objects nearby when listening and you have taken your meds, his music is quite dour and turbulent..

I completely agree with you.  I have just spent a few hours listening to his symphonies (No. 1, 4, 5, 6, 10, 13) and find them very engaging.  It is hard to describe other than saying they are neo-romantic/post modern.  In some ways it reminds me of Prokofiev, Pendericki, and Peterson.  Dark, gloomy, and intense but certainly an original voice.  I really loved what I heard.
