For nearly four decades Germany’s Auryn Quartet has dazzled audiences around the globe. 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. The group has just announced an addition to their U.S. tour and on Sunday, Oct. 15 they will be performing at Boothbay Harbor’s historic Opera House at 3 p.m.

The all-original members quartet includes Matthias Lingenfelder and Jens Oppermann on violin, Stewart Eaton on viola and Andres Arndt on cello. The four have appeared at festivals including 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 among others.

For many years, it was the quartet-in-residence at the Schubert & Schubert Festival at Washington’s Georgetown University.
