One of the most important members of the generation of Hungarian composers who followed Bartók and Kodály. His œuvre includes theatrical, orchestral, oratorial, chamber, and solo instrumental works. Although he rarely quoted folk material directly in his music, folksong, popular music and the spirit of the Hungarian musical tradition permeated his works. In the last two decades of his life he wrote atonal and twelwe-tone compositions. With his Wind quintet (composed 1949) he created a genre which plays an important role in the new Hungarian music.
