(1846 - 1900)

Like his father, Ferenc Erkel, Sándor Erkel enjoyed a career as a conductor at the Hungarian National Theatre, initially under his father and then under Hans Richter, whom he succeeded as musical director in 1876.

Piano Music

Sándor Erkel lacked the distinction of his father as a composer. His works include a transcription based on his father’s opera Brankovics György, a work that tended to support Turkey rather than Russia, as Turkey had refused to hand over Hungarian refugees to the Austro-Hungarian government after the nationalist rising of 1849.
