Composer and violinist Ellenbogen studied at the Vienna Conservatory and then returned to his home town of Miskolc where he organized and led the theater orchestra. He soon left to join the theater orchestra in Pest, where he also conducted the ballet. As a composer, Ellenbogen specialized in dances and fantasias on popular themes. In 1851, he founded the Magyar Zeneszerző-társulatot (Hungarian Composers Association).
Hollósy (1827-1890) was a Hungarian soprano of Armenian descent who became the leading operatic singer in Hungary. Erkel wrote roles specifically for her, and she frequently sang patriotic songs in her concerts during the rise of Hungarian nationalism.
