Máté Péter magyar énekes, hangszerelő, zeneszerző és zongorista

 Máté Péter (Budapest, 1947. február 4. – Budapest, 1984. szeptember 9.) magyar énekes, hangszerelő, zeneszerző és zongorista. Közel 150 dal szerzője és előadója. Dalai évtizedekkel halála után is nagy népszerűségnek örvendenek.

Péter Máté was born on 4 February 1947 in Budapest. He learned singing, playing piano and guitar from age 6 with a private teacher, and from 14, in a school of music. Discovering his talent and wide-spectrum voice, he was taught by known figures like composer György Geszler or András Bágya. He gained a wide spectrum of musical knowledge, which allowed him to write, compose, score and play his own music all by himself. These skills proved to be important in gaining his later fame.
After some years in a runner-up band from 1965, he made his first recordings at the Magyar Rádió in 1965, including Úgy várom hogy jössz-e már?, and Mondd már, in cooperation with Illés. The two songs, and his first prize at the largest pol-beat festival of the Eastern Block in Sochi made him well known in the region. Several awards on festivals followed, notably in Cuba, Canada, Germany and Ireland. Besides pop music, he also scored musicals (including Hungarian version of Jesus Christ Superstar), and wrote theatrical background music. The ongoing popularity came with a change of lifestyle, including heavy smoking and alcohol, habits his weak heart could not bear. He died of cardiac seizure on 9 September 1984, aged 37. He was buried in the Farkasréti Cemetery in Budapest, an event that was attended by tens of thousands of mourning fans.
