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.
The quartet’s wide and diverse repertoire includes a particular focus on the works of Hungarian composers such as Bartók, Kodály and Dohnányi. The current members of the quartet are four renowned chamber musicians. Violinists Attila Falvay and Ferenc Bangó, violist János Fejérvári and cellist György Éde will offer the Ljubljana audience selection of works by composers of the middle and late Romantic period.
