Introducing the ‘Pommes Marton’
Corinthia Hotel Budapest goes sweet on singer Éva Marton
The birthday of chamber singer Éva Marton on 18 June was celebrated in the menu at the Corinthia Hotel Budapest by a dessert called the “Pommes Marton”.
The Corinthia Hotel Budapest is the cooperation partner of the Globalarts4Peace Foundation, which sets out to promote young singers from Liszt Ferenc Music Academy in Budapest, where the International Éva Marton Singing Competition will be held for the first time next year.
A gala in honour of Marton by the State Opera House was shown live on a large screen in front of Szent István Basilica. International stars such as Grace Bumbry and Jonas Kaufmann were given a standing ovation and Marton, born in 1943, treated the audience to a beautiful rendition of the Vissi d’arte aria from Tosca.
