The highly regarded Auryn Quartet called it quits this morning.
The quartet, founded in 1981, will shut down in 2021, its 40th anniversary year.
The members are Andreas Arndt, Stewart Eaton, Mattthias Lingenfelder and Jens Oppermann.
I remember the Auryns for a brilliant set of first recordings of the four Berthold Goldschmidt quartets. Over time, they have recorded Haydn’s 68 in a boxed set.
