*From the New York Times obituary (10/25/19):

Marta Kurtag, a pianist and teacher who shared a 72-year collaboration with her husband, the prominent avant-garde composer Gyorgy Kurtag, profoundly influencing his work and joining him in dual recitals that acquired a legendary reputation in their later years, died on Oct. 17 in Budapest. She was 92.

Her death, in a hospital, was confirmed by the Budapest Music Center, a performing arts complex where she lived with Mr. Kurtag in an apartment.
