    Iván Erőd, 2 January 1936 – 24 June 2019, was a Hungarian-Austrian composer and pianist. Educated in Budapest, he emigrated to Austria in 1956, where he studied at the Vienna Music Academy. He was successful as a pianist and composer of operas, chamber music and much more, with elements from serialism, Hungarian folk music and jazz. He was a professor of composition at the Vienna Music Academy from 1989. Erőd's brother and grandparents were murdered at Auschwitz in 1944. He fled Hungary after the events of 1956. He married in 1969 and had five children, among them Adrian, a baritone, and Leonard, a bassoonist at the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. He died of complications from a stroke in Vienna on 24 June 2019. He was 83.

    I can't even begin to guess what "brigthens" means.

    Doesn't your keyboard have a backspace key?

    It is merely a typo. And there aren't any keyboards that don't have a backspace key. So, it's an uncorrected typo. Why would you be trying to guess what "brigthens" means? If you read the sentence with the typo in it, one does not have to "guess" that the intended word was "brightens".
