The story of the Dohnányi Quartet began in 2003, at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music. They started their work under the guidance of Géza Németh and the Bartók Quartet; a musical journey they progressed with unchanged enthusiasm, inspired by the richness of the string-quartet canon, their musical curiosity and the joy of playing together. For 15 years, the ensemble played as Rondo Quartet. They assumed the name Dohnányi in 2019.

When performing, the quartet gladly connects quartets with lesser-known pieces, weaving their concerts’ narrative into imperceptible threads of connections.

Since 2017, the string quartet has been presenting a series of concerts at the BMC library. Their first album debuted in January 2018, with two quartet pieces of Ernő Dohnányi.  In 2019 they recorded two more works from Dohnányi. With that, they are the first hungarian string quartet, who recorded all of Dohnanyi’s string quartets.

Through their career, they have performed together with Ferenc Rados, Gyula Stuller, Gábor Csalog, Zoltán Fejérvári, and the Bartók Quartet.
