Antal Dorati

Dorati, Antal (äntälˈ dōräˈtē) [key], 1906–88, Hungarian-American conductor, b. Budapest. Dorati studied with Zoltán Kodály and Béla Bartók. He made his conducting debut at 18 at the Budapest Opera. His first appearance in the United States was with the National Symphony in 1937. Dorati was the conductor of the Dallas (1945–48), Minneapolis (1949–60), and British Broadcasting Corporation (1963–66) symphonies, the Stockholm Philharmonic (1966–70), the National Symphony in Washington, D.C. (1970–77), the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (1977–81), and, simultaneously, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London (1975–79). Dorati subordinated his composing to conducting. Of his many recordings, his major achievement was a complete recording of all of Haydn's symphonies.
