Members of Aurum Quartet performing on the stage were Albin Blaho, Rada Kovacova, Simon Stimel and Juraj Pivoluska. Their ensemble was formed when all of them were students of Bratislava Conservatory and Janacek Academy of Performing Arts. Within few years they graduated their Institutes with honors, won some prestigious competitions and started to work as concert soloists, teachers, members of National Orchestra and Theater. They were mainly in Slovakia but also abroad, like Rada Kovacova, cooperating with The Vienna University.
