Marta Kurtag, composer György Kurtag’s life and work companion, died in Budapest at the age of 92. In 1947 she married the composer, taking on a decisive meaning in every field of her life: as a wife, as the mother of their son, György Kurtag Jr (born in 1954), as a pianist and also as the first listener and critic of his compositions in gestation. Their four-handed concerts are famous, in which they mostly performed pieces by Kurtag himself and transcriptions by Bach.
