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


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:
Thoughout the whole text, he is referred to as "Kodály Zoltán" there! It's just the same with Bartók:

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.
