The 4th Éva Marton International Singing Competition had a record number of nearly three hundred entries this year; the majority of the young applicants submitted outstanding video recordings, and thus the jury selected an unusually high number of competitors, 116 in total, for the semi-finals. However, we will all have to wait one year for the young sopranos, mezzos, altos, tenors, baritones and basses to demonstrate and match their skills live, as the all-out contest is scheduled to begin in late August 2021. We sat down to talk about the competition being postponed and how this was received by the singers, as well as the consequences of all this with Éva Marton, who also told us how she herself put up with the months of quarantine.
