Hungaroton was founded as a state label by the Hungarian record company, Magyar Hanglemezgyártó Vállalat (M.H.V.), in 1951. The records were originally released under the label Qualiton up to the mid-sixties when the new brand name Hungaroton was created. Qualiton then furtherly existed as sublabel for folk music only, while Hungaroton became the template for pop, literature and mainly classical releases.
