Graduated from the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris, the French quartet receives regularly advices from Hatto Beyerle, Johannes Meissl and Ebène Quartet.
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 humour get involved in the delicacy and the sensibility of its interpretation.
The Quartet has performed in large halls as the Wigmore Hall, the Victoria Hall, the «Auditorium de la Maison de la Radio» in Paris, the « Opéra de Lyon », the « Salle Cortot » or the « Cité de la Musique ».
The Hanson Quartet is regularly invited to play through over Europe (Germany, Norway, England, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, Morocco…) and since 2016 is in residency at the French Radio (France Musique).
