(b Pécs, 3 April 1891; d Munich, 26 March 1976). Hungarian soprano. She studied in Vienna with Rosa Papier, making her début there at the Staatsoper in 1919 as the First Lady (Die Zauberflöte). She remained a member of the Vienna company until 1926, when she joined the Staatsoper in Munich, singing there regularly until 1944 with occasional postwar appearances until 1953. Originally a lyric soprano, taking such roles as the Queen of Night, Fiordiligi and Mařenka, she gradually assumed more dramatic roles, including Donna Anna, Elisabeth, Antonia, the Marschallin, Eva and Elsa. Hüni-Mihacsek, who was also an accomplished concert artist, was generally considered one of the outstanding Mozart sopranos of the inter-war period.
