"Chamber music is the truest expression of Dohnányi's art" - said Aladár Tóth in 1927 after the premiere of the Hungarian composers third quartet in a minor, op. 33. In a cooperation of Rózsavölgyi Records and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, a quartet oy young and formidable musicians recorded Dohnányi's pieces, including the seldom-played Op. 33. The recording also includes a rare gem: Dohnányi's unpublished quartet from 1983, written at a very young age.
