In March 2011, the Auryn Quartet celebrated its 30th anniversary (original formation!). Thus for more than 30 years, Auryn, the amulet that grants intuition in Michael Ende's "Neverending Story", has been the symbol for one of the foremost string quartets of its generation, whose hallmarks are interpretive mastery, individuality and intensity of expression.

Having studied with the Amadeus Quartet in Cologne as well as with the Guarneri Quartet at the University of Maryland, the quartet went on to win first prizes at the prestigious ARD Competition Munich, the International String Quartet Competition Portsmouth, and the Competition of European Radio Stations.

By now, the Auryn Quartet has concertized in most of the major music centers of the world, and has appeared at festivals such as Klangbogen Wien, Lockenhaus, Bregenz,  Mondsee, Luzern, Gstaad, Les Arcs, Montepulciano, Kuhmo, Schleswig-Holstein, the Beethovenfest Bonn, Rheinisches Musikfest Bonn, Berliner Festwochen, and the Festivals of Flanders and Edinburgh; it opened the  Salzburg festival in 2008.  The quartet has its own festival in Este, the Veneto in Italy, and is artistic advisor to the Mondseefestival, having taken over from Heinrich Schiff.
