Attila Fülöp (Tenor)

Born: July 2, 1942 - Szombathely, Hungary

The Hungarian tenor, Attila Fülöp, studied engineering sciences and worked then as a sound engineer at the Hungarian record company Hungaroton. After his singing studies, which he completed later in Budapest with Janoe Sipos and with Dagmar Freiwald-Lange in Berlin, he appeared first as a concert singer.

In 1971 Attila Fülöp made his stage debut, singing Tamino in the opera Zauberflöte by Mozart at the Budapest National Opera. Since that time he has been a member of this opera house, where he specialized primarily in the lyric roles (among other things Count Almaviva in Il Barbiere di Siviglia). In October 1978 he participated there in the premiere of the opera Az ajtón delusa by Sándor Balassa. He took up then also numerous character roles like Mime in the Nibelung Ring and Gottesnarren in Boris Godunow in his stage repertoire. Appearances and concerts in Hungary as well as abroad justified his call as one of the prominent Hungarian singers of his generation. In the concert hall he appeared gladly as Evangelist in the Passions of J.S. Bach.

Attila Fülöp's voice appears on the record label Hungaroton in the complete recordings of Haydns operas Der Apotheker, La fedeltà premiata und L'Infedeltà delusa, also in the contemporary opera Az ajtón Kivuel by Sándor Balassa. He has many other recording on Hungaroton, including Fedora by Giordano, Mosè in Egitto by Rossini, Te Deum by Marc Antoine Charpentier, Il ritorno di Tobia by J.Haydn, Coronation Mass by Mozart.
