The Auryn Quartet is a German string quartet.[1] Founded in 1981, the members are Andreas Arndt (cello), Stewart Eaton (viola), Mattthias Lingenfelder (*1959) and Jens Oppermann (*1960), both violin.

After winning several early awards - including the London International Competition (1982), the ARD International Music Competition (1982), and the main prize at the European Broadcasting Competition in Bratislava (1989) - they have had the opportunity to treat the classic repertoire in particular depth thanks to the ongoing interactions between the original personnel.[2][3]

Their recordings include the complete 68 quartets of Haydn[4] and 15 plus the Grosse Fuge by Beethoven.[5][6]
