An Interview with Márta Eggerth

“I was born in Budapest.  My mother was a fantastic singer.  She studied in the Budapest conservatory, which now is called the Franz Liszt Conservatory. She had the most beautiful voice, but she gave her career up to be a wife and mother.  I started to sing at age eleven.  Paul Abraham was a fantastic composer. He heard me sing and gave me a child’s part in his opera. I was the biggest success because I was a child.  I sang all over the world, only classical music – the great arias. I toured all over Europe before the age of seventeen.”
