The Vegh Quartet, founded by the Hungarian violinist Sandor Vegh in 1940, is considered one of the most renowned string quartets of its time. Their worldwide recognition was due not least to their legendary recordings of Beethoven’s and Bartok’s string quartets, which are presented here in a total of 13 original albums.

The Beethoven cycle, recorded in 1952, an undisputed highlight among the fascinating compositions by the genius from Bonn, was a focus of their musical partnership from the beginning. Not only are these recordings indispensable collectors’ pieces for chamber music lovers; their recordings of Bartok’s six string quartets, made in 1954, also set standards to this day. They owe their authenticity to the close connection with the composer, who had entrusted the ensemble with the premiere of his Fifth Quartet from this group.
