Info for The Auryn Series, Vol. 8

"BEST RECORDING: Who needs a lot of words when Franz Schubert’s string quintet in C major starts up and you can be sure: if you go with this, you are at the mercy of the spirit of the music and your own heartbeat. The twenty-year-old Auryn Quartet spreads out its wings of thought with calm pulse and far into a paradise full of tragedy." (Hessisch-Niedersächsische Allgemeine)

“The TACET label, famous for ist visionary, high-quality repertoire policy, uses new technology to search for new ways of using the auditorium for musical experiences. Andreas Spreer, owner and manager of the label Tonmeister of this recording, places the listener right in the middle of the musicians: opposite the viola, with the violins at front left and right and the two cellos behind his or her shoulders. This configuration is most definitely unusual and takes some getting used to; but what three-dimensionalness it gives to Schubert’s wonderful – and wonderfully played – String Quintet! The themes become tangible thanks to the masterful interpretation, the structure of the work is intuitively understandable, and the attribute “acoustically transparent” should really be redefined after this recording.” (Kulturspiegel”)

(…) Ever wondered what it was like to play in a chamber group such as this? Well, choose your instrument and sit close to that speaker. You’ll get a pretty good idea.” (Audiophile Audition)
