Aladár Rácz (February 28, 1886 Jászapáti - March 28, 1958 Budapest) was a Hungarian cimbalom player known for adapting Baroque harpsichord and clavecin repertoire for the cimbalom, which is traditionally a Hungarian folk music instrument. He was the winner of the 1948 Kossuth Prize and influenced the composer Igor Stravinsky to incorporate the cimbalom into his compositions.
