The members are Istvan Kertesz, first violin; Erika Petoefi, second violin; Péter Ligeti, Kriszta Véghelyi, viola; and Rezső Pertorini, cello. The Festetics Quartet combines the use of period instruments with the legendary tradition of Hungarian string quartets. The quartet is named after the Festetics family, founders of the famous Helikon music library. Its repertoire includes string quartets by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert.
The Festetics Quartet has recorded all of the Haydn string quartets, available on CD.
