Sandor Salgo (Hungarian: Salgó Sándor; Budapest, 10 March 1909-Palo Alto, California, 2007) was a Hungarian-born Jewish composer who emigrated to America in 1937.
Born into a Jewish family in Budapest, Hungary in 1909, Sandor Salgo studied music in Budapest. A clear standout, his early career was affected by the prewar antisemitism then prevalent in Hungary. In 1937, Sandor Salgo and a string quartet would serenade the bed-ridden wife of the American Ambassador to Hungary. America's walls were closed to immigrants, but the Ambassador refused to leave Mr. Salgo behind and he was afforded a special visa to America in 1937.
