DITTA PASZTORY, 80, PIANIST AND WIDOW OF BELA BARTOK


By ELEANOR BLAU (The New York Times); Obituary November 23, 1982, Tuesday

Ditta Pasztory, a pianist and widow of Bela Bartok, died Sunday in Budapest, the Hungarian Ministry of Culture announced yesterday. She was 80 years old. Miss Pasztory, who had been a student of Bartok, earned an international reputation as an interpreter of his music. They married in 1923, after the composer divorced his first wife. The couple gave duo concerts after they moved to New York in 1940, and Miss Pasztory played in two-piano recitals of her husband's works after returning to Budapest in 1946 following his death.
