Eugene Fodor (born March 5, 1950 in Denver, Colorado) is an American violinist.

Fodor's first ten years of study were with Harold Wippler. He then studied at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City, Indiana University and the University of Southern California, where his teachers included Ivan Galamian, Josef Gingold and Jascha Heifetz, respectively.

Fodor made his solo debut with the Denver Symphony at the age of ten, playing Max Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1 and began touring as a soloist while still a young teenager.

Fodor won numerous national contests before the age of seventeen, including First Prize in both the Merriweather Post Competition in Washington, D.C. and the Young Musicians Foundation Competition in Los Angeles, California.

He went on to win first prize in the International Paganini Competition in Italy in 1972, at the age of 22. It was his win at the Paganini competition that gained him widespread public attention. He achieved the highest prize awarded (second prize, shared with two other violinists) in the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1974 in Moscow, Russia. This award raised his profile further, especially considering that he was an American winning the top Soviet prize during the height of the Cold War. Fodor was also awarded the European Soloist award "Prix Europeen du Soliste" in January 1999.

He appeared on the television show SCTV in November 1981 in a parody of the Joan Crawford movie Humoresque called New York Rhapsody.[1]

He is a National Patron of Delta Omicron, an international professional music fraternity.
