In later years she studied with Leo Weiner and Arnold Székely at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest (graduating in 1938), with Professor Robert Teichmuller at the Leipzig Conservatory, and with Paul Weingarten of the Vienna Conservatory. She also won the Grand Prix de l’Académie Franz Liszt. In 1946 she was invited to participate in the Marguerite Long / Jacques Thibaud competition in Paris as one of several young European Jewish musicians brought there by the American Joint Distribution Commission (a fellow Hungarian, Hedy Schneider won that year).

She appeared as a soloist with such conductors as Sir Adrian Boult, André Cluytens, Eugen Jochum, Josef Krips, Rafael Kubelík, Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt, Konstantin Silvestri and Walter Susskind.
