  • Márta Szekeres-Farkas


(b Budapest, Sept 23, 1915; d Budapest, March 31, 1993). Hungarian musicologist. He took the doctorate of laws at Budapest University (1939) and studied music at the piano faculty of the Fodor School of Music, Budapest. In 1967 he took the CSc with a dissertation on Bartók’s early development. His research is centred on Bartók: he has published some small-scale biographies (the first in 1946), and in 1947 became responsible for the collection and publication of Bartók’s letters; his documentary biography was published in Zenetudományi tanulmányok between 1954 and 1962. Among his many other musicological works are studies of Endre Székely, János Seprődi, Sándor Veress and Antal Molnár. Much of his writing deals with the question of the synthesis of music and other arts. He was awarded the Erkel Prize in 1974.
