Alfréd Márkus (Fred Markush) grew up in Budapest and worked at the Népszínház from 1902 until its closure in 1908. During the interwar period he acheived great success with his stage comedies, film music, and popular songs. His Jewish heritage ended his career as a composer, but he served as a conductor for the Országos Magyar Izraelita Közművelődési Egyesület (Hungarian Jewish Educational Association) from 1940 to 1944.
