The four interprets of Hansons are particularly involved in research and understanding of the musical language. Thanks to its knowledge of the music repertoire founding the string quartet, and especially Joseph Haydn, the Hanson Quartet builds up to itself a strong identity of discourse in which intelligence and a touch of humor get involved in the delicacy and the sensibility of its interpretation.
