Antal Dorati (4/09/1906 - 11/13/1988)

Both Antal Dorati’s parents were musicians: his father was a violinist in the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Budapest Opera, while his mother was a teacher of music. Antal was the youngest student ever to have graduated from the Franz Liszt Academy, which he did when he was only eighteen in 1924. His teachers at the Academy included Bartók, Kodály and the distinguished pedagogue Leo Weiner, all of whom were also family friends. On graduation he immediately joined the music staff of the Budapest Opera as a répétiteur, making his conducting debut there during the same year. He remained with the company for four years, before being engaged in 1928 as Fritz Busch’s assistant at the Dresden Opera, where he worked for only one season before becoming chief conductor at the Münster Opera in Westphalia, a position he held until 1933. While at Münster Dorati also conducted extensively as a guest, appearing in concert and opera throughout Germany, Hungary and Czechoslovakia.
