Together with Hungaroton Classic, the Auer String Quartet has set out to record Lajtha's complete string quartets and bring this overlooked composer to light. The influence of the Bartók is quite clear, yet Lajtha's writing is also informed by Bach as evidenced by his favorable use of polyphony and the immense, sophisticated fugue that draws the quartet to a close. Volume 4 also includes Lajtha's sole Piano Quintet, a massive 37-minute work cast in a single, expansive movement.

Quartet No. 9 is a memorably melodic work, while the beautifully crafted Quartet No. 6, his last completed quartet, is rather more austere, though marked by a playful Jig, and even more masterful in construction. Quartet No.
