The Roth Quartet was founded by Feri Roth in Budapest in 1922. The group enjoyed a successful début in Paris in 1924, then set off on a tour of Europe and Africa, and re-organised into the line-up featured on this recording in 1928. All were Hungarians from Budapest. By 1937 they had given 750 concerts. A write-up in 1937 in the Gramophone stated they had been described as worthy successors to the Joachim and Flonzaley quartets.
