 Update me on new releases by Kertesz

Istvan Kertesz (1929 - 1973)

As a child István Kertész learnt to play the violin and piano, before going on to study composition and the violin between 1949 and 1953 at the Liszt Academy in Budapest, where he was a pupil of Kodály and Leo Weiner. He also received instruction on conducting from Lászlo Somogyi, and was influenced by Otto Klemperer, who at this time was active at the Budapest Opera, and by Bruno Walter. Kertész was appointed chief conductor with the Györ Philharmonic Orchestra in 1953, holding this position for two years before returning to Budapest to work as a répétiteur and conductor at the Budapest Opera. Following the 1956 Hungarian uprising against Soviet influence he left Hungary with his family and settled in Germany, later taking German citizenship.
