 Update me on new releases by Laszlo

Magda Laszlo (1919 - 2002)

Magda László studied at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest with Irene Stowasser and Ferenc Székelyhedi and joined the Budapest Opera in 1943, making her stage debut as Elisabeth / Tannhäuser, followed by Amelia / Simon Boccanegra. She left Hungary in 1946, settling in Italy where initially she sang in concerts with the pianist Luigi Cortese. These were followed by successful radio and opera appearances: she sang Isolde in a 1947 production of Tristan und Isolde for Italian radio (RAI) and created the part of the Mother in Luigi Dallapiccola’s Il prigionero, firstly for RAI in 1949 and then on stage at the 1950 Florence Maggio Musicale, with Hermann Scherchen conducting.

By the time László participated in the 1951 festival of contemporary music at Frankfurt, she had established a strong reputation as an interpreter of modern music. She created the role of Cressida in Walton’s Troilus and Cressida at the Royal Opera House in 1954, the same year in which she sang the part of Manon Lescaut in Henze’s Boulevard Solitude; and sang in Schoenberg’s Von Heute auf Morgen at the Holland Festival in 1958. At Bologna she once again sang the role of the Mother in 1966, followed by Marie / Wozzeck in 1969.
