3RD INTERNATIONAL ÉVA MARTON SINGING COMPETITION
Orchestra of the Hungarian State Opera Conductor: Balázs Kocsár
“You have to give gifted young artists wings to fly.” This is how, in an interview prior to the 2nd International Éva Marton Singing Competition, the eponym of the competition expressed herself; and without any exaggeration, this magnificent undertaking by the Liszt Academy provides this very opportunity. After all, the two previous winners of the Grand Prix, Hungarian Szilvia Vörös and Belarusian Alexander Roslavets, saw their respective careers soar immediately following their victories. The mezzo-soprano not only has regular roles in performances of the Budapest Opera, but she has sung alongside Placido Domingo and Anna Netrebko, while the bass from Belarus will debut at the New York Metropolitan Opera next February. Thus, the stakes are high and the opportunities unbounded. Anyone interested in knowing who stands a good chance of being among the leading figures of international opera in the next few years would do well to pay close attention to the final of the 3rd International Éva Marton Singing Competition.
