The training I received at the Academy was difficult and at times harsh, but those who survived the experience emerged as real musicians.

In the 20th century, the high quality chamber music culture of Hungary has given Europe and the world such world-renowned chamber ensembles as Budapest String Quartet, Waldbauer–Kerpely String Quartet, Hungarian String Quartet, Végh Quartet, Tátrai String Quartet, Bartók String Quartet and Takács Quartet, to name just a few of the many possible examples. The Kodály String Quartet founded in 1966 from students of the Liszt Academy fit neatly into this musical heritage. They took on the name of the famous Hungarian composer in 1972, and have represented the culture of Hungarian string quartet playing around the world for over 50 years. The ensemble have recorded all the quartets of Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert, and these have regularly sparked rave reviews in the international media. During this recital we hear two string quartets by Mozart and Beethoven, plus one of the string quintets by Johannes Brahms, with Máté Szűcs, the excellent violist, joining Kodály String Quartet for the latter.
