At the ARD International music competition in Munich in 2006 the Chantily Quintet was awarded second prize, the special prize for the best interpretation of the commissioned work and the Audience Prize. Since then the ensemble has rapidly risen to a leading position in its field. Its members hold solo positions in the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Konzerthaus Orchestra in Berlin and the Radio Symphony Orchestra of Berlin, and the work of the ensemble has been much influenced by the conductor Marek Janowksi. Performances by the Chantily Quintet at the Konzerthaus and the Philharmonie in Berlin were received with enthusiasm and the ensemble has performed at the ARD Chamber Music Festival at Schloss Elmau and in the Winners and Masters concert series in Munich and Berlin. At the invitation of the Goethe Institute, the Chantily Quintet gave a gala concert during the millennium celebrations in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, and has held workshops and performed in several countries of Eastern Africa.

The quintet has also earned a reputation for its master-classes at various European Academies of Music. The Chantily Quintet released its first recording, in collaboration with Bavarian Radio, in 2008, with works of Mozart and Beethoven, for the Profil Edition Günter Hänssler label, for which further recordings have been planned.
