I started to play the piano as a little child in Hungary and became interested in all music classical forever. Then I worked as an English teacher for 30 years, mostly in Hungary, where I also taught trainee teachers for over a decade, and did translation work. I later taught English in China for a few years too. I met and started to accompany my friend, soprano Zhong Jun Shen there. She had graduated as an opera singer from the University of Xi’An in North-China, but afterwards moved to teach classical singing at a university in South-China, where she also gave occasional concerts. After she had moved to the Netherlands for further studies and to earn a master’s degree a few years ago, we resumed work again. We are both freelance now, giving concerts when possible. I have been working with other singers for a while too.
