Biography

Zoltán Kodály (/ˈkoʊdaɪ/; Hungarian: Kodály Zoltán, pronounced [ˈkodaːj ˈzoltaːn]; 16 December 1882 – 6 March 1967) was a Hungarian composer, ethnomusicologist, pedagogue, linguist, and philosopher. He is well known internationally as the creator of the Kodály Method.

The first love of Kodály's life was Emma Schlesinger, a Jewish divorcee nearly twenty years his senior, whom he married in Budapest in 1910. She passed away in November 1958. In December 1959, Kodály married Sarolta Péczely, his 19-year-old student at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music with whom he lived happily until his death in 1967 at the age of 84 in Budapest.

I don't have the time to copy all the sources over from his FamilySearch Family Tree, but I've connected his profile using the FamilySearch Connections app.

Note that his second wife was still very much alive as of last summer -- she attended a concert along with her hundred-year-old mother in August of 2017 (https://www.bama.hu/kultura/helyi-kultura/pecsre-latogat-peczely-sarolta-kodaly-zoltan-ozvegye-1101159/).
