Comments
Born in Hungary and classically trained, Feyer played principally light music. He was imprisoned in Bergen-Belsen near the end of World War II. Upon his release, he played in Budapest, but left Hungary with the establishment of Communist rule, moving to Switzerland. Switzerland would not allow Feyer and his family to become permanent residents so in 1951, they moved to the United States, settled in New York, and became American citizens in 1956.
