She studied at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music as pupil of Adolf Schiffer.
From 1933 to 1945 she worked as private teacher and also taught in the Goldmark Music School. From 1945 she was solo violoncellist of the Capital City Orchestra and later of its successor, the Hungarian State Orchestra. Between 1945 and 1952 she was member of the Tátrai String Quartet. From 1960 until her death she taught at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music.
She had considerably successful concerts not only in Hungary but abroad as well. She performed in the USSR, in England, Germany, China and Australia, too. A number of first performances and Hungarian premieres are linked with her name. Some examples: András Mihály's Cello Concerto, the Cello Concerto No. 1. by Shostakovich, the Solo Sonata by Ferenc Szabó, the Rapsody by Rezső Sugár, the Spring Concerto by Tibor Sárai and Benjamin Britten's Sonata.
For her work she was honored with the Liszt Prize (1952, 1954, 1959) and in 1961 she was awarded with the title Merited Artist.
