(1885–1945) was a talented Hungarian
organist who made his career in the United States. He was also known as Antalffy-Zsíross
Dezsö and Désiré d’Antalffy. He studied with Straube
and Bossi and served as organist at St Stephen’s Cathedral in Budapest
before moving to the US. George Eastman hired him to teach at the Eastman School
of Music, he served as house organist for New York City’s
Roxy Theatre and Radio City Music Hall, and he was the organist for the New
York Philharmonic. He wrote organ music and pieces for large forces including
the 1932 dedication of Rockefeller Center, “The Voice of Millions.” Festa Bucolica
is moderately difficult.
