Hanson Quartet


Founded in 2013, the Hanson Quartet was formed under the leadership of Hatto Beyerle (European Chamber Music Academy), the Ébène Quartet and Jean Sulem at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris. Guided by these eminent musicians, they make Haydn quartets their aesthetic and musical anchor. The study of classical works allows him to highlight the rhetorical and often whimsical aspect of the music of this composer. At the same time, he tackles the works of composers of our time such as Toshio Hosokawa, Wolfgang Rihm or Mathias Pintscher, of which he gives the French premiere of Figura IV at the IRCAM Festival. Appropriating the music of his time is for him the expression of the absolute necessity to exist in his musical era.

Supported by the Banque Populaire foundation as well as by the Singer-Polignac foundation where they are in residence in Paris, the four musicians of the Hanson Quartet have won many international competitions: Lyon in 2015, Geneva in 2016, as well as Joseph Haydn in Vienna where they are awarded several special prizes. They are invited to festivals such as the Printemps Musical des Alizés, the Deauville Festival, the Roque d'Anthéron and the Aix-en-Provence Festival. Their concerts at the Wigmore Hall in London, the Radio France Auditorium, the Victoria Hall in Geneva and the ORF Kulturhaus in Vienna allow them to make themselves known in Europe, China and Norway.
