The Kodály Quartet has been active for more than five decades and is one of the world’s leading chamber ensembles. The quartet’s story began in 1966, when it was founded by four students from Budapest’s Franz Liszt Music Academy. Six years later it was renamed in honour of the famous Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály. Over the last decade, the quartet’s members have performed in practically every country in Europe, the United States, Central and South America, Australia, the Far East and New Zealand. As ambassadors of musical culture at both a national and international level, they are committed to preserving and sharing the treasures of Hungarian music. The quartet’s wide and diverse repertoire includes a particular focus on the works of Hungarian composers such as Bartók, Kodály and Dohnányi. The Kodály Quartet has recorded the greater part of the core repertoire for string quartet, including the complete string quartets of Beethoven, Schubert and Haydn. They have received countless prizes and accolades for their work and in 1990 the Hungarian government proclaimed them Artists of Merit of the Hungarian Republic. The current members of the quartet are four renowned chamber musicians. Violinists Attila Falvay and Zoltán Tuska, violist János Fejérvári and cellist György Éde will offer the Ljubljana audience selection of works by composers of the middle and late Romantic period.
