Hungarian composer and violinist Ferenc Albert (Franz/Franćois d'Albert) was a popular performer and composer during the interwar period in Budapest. He left Hungary following the war, taught in Ireland for several years, and eventually settled in Chicago, where he became a prominent figure. He served as president of the Chicago Conservatory College from 1959 to 1980 and worked to promote the pedagogical methods of Zoltán Kodály.
