JOSEPH BIRO!


Joseph Biro was one of the greatest violinist of his time and perhaps one of the most underrated violinist we ever know.This is the very first and only made in Brazil private Budapest Quartet recording sponsored by Lions Club of Rio de Janeiro (Lions 001 mono label). The “Biro Quartet”, founded in Budapest in 1946, have always had the same constitution, except for the cello position, which had Laszlo Varga (USA), György Fejér (Hungary) and finally Lajos Frank. 

In December 1956, due to the political problems in his country, Joseph Biro (first violin) moved to Austria and then to Rio de Janeiro where he settled for some time.  - Saulo Zucchello
