Notes & Reviews:

János Végh jr. (1845-1918) is ranked as a composer among the musicians of conservative romanticism: several of his orchestral, vocal, and piano works as well as chamber music appeared in print. The discovery in manuscript of the three string quartets (F major, G minor and D major) is due to the interest and zeal of the Authentic Quartet playing on period instruments that ever since its establishment has often delighted music lovers with their performance of 18th-19th- century Central European and Hungarian musical rarities.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
True to its pretentious name, the Authentic Quartet plays these works on period instruments without vibrato. Their performances may well reflect ones at the time of composition. Mr Baumann has praised Authentic Quartet recordings of Baroque and classical era works in ARG.
