The Masters Collection compiles the iconic recordings of some of the most renowned artists of Hungaroton. The album features records which define an œuvre, a specific era and which will be an unforgettable experience for all listeners. The focus of this album is the Tatrai Quartet. Founded in 1946 and based in Hungary, the Tatrai Quartet was one of the foremost string quartets in Hungary for the half century following the Second World War. Specializing in Haydn and Bartok, the ensemble recorded both composers’ complete quartets for Hungaroton, as well as works by Mozart and Beethoven. They were also responsible for premiere performances of works by Hungarian composers of the era.
