Four musicians from three nations established the 'Aura Quartett' in 1992. They are members of the Basel Symphony Orchestra; Hiroko Suzuki is the principal concertmistress, Roger Payne the first violinist, Christian Vaucher plays the viola and Conrad Wyss is the substitute solo cellist. The quartet achieves a particular vibrancy through the internationality of its members; there emerge unusual interpretations in lucid timbres, intensive sonority and virtuoso playing techniques. Musical partners such as the pianists Adrian Oetiker, Gérard Wyss and Hans Joerg Fink, the flautest Peter Lukas Graf, the oboist Omar Zoboli and the Swiss Wind Quintet enrich, amongst other things, a wide-ranging repertoire with chamber music from trio to nonet. The programmes incorporate the whole palette of quartet literature, from classic to contemporary.
