Zathureczky (1903-1959) studied with Jeno Hubay at the Liszt Academy in Budapest.  He made his first recital our in 1920 at the age of 17, touring Austria, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Czechoslovakia, Poland and Scandinavia.  In 1929 he returned to Budapest and became Hubay’s assistant.  In 1934 he played a memorable concert with Bela Bartok accompanying him at the Korona Hotel in Nyíregyháza.  In 1943 he was appointed Director of the Budapest Music Academy and retained the position until 1957.  His duo partners at the time were pianists Annie Fischer and Béla Böszörményi-Nagy.  Nagy left Hungary and arrived at the Indiana School of Music, where Menahem Pressler another one of old friends and accompanists also taught.  Zathureczky for a number of years gave master classes at Indiana.  He also would travel to Florida to visit his old friend composer-pianist Erno Dohnanyi and they made private recordings together.  That said, he also recorded with Fischer, Nagy and Pressler.  There is also a recording of Zathureczky playing the Bartok 2nd violin concerto with Janos Ferencsik at the Erkel Theater in Budapest.
