About

To Haydn, brilliant pioneer, the Hanson Quartet are grateful! All shall not die echoes the Non omnis moriar engraved on Joseph Haydn's tomb in Vienna. The Latin epitaph recognizes the immortality of the composer through his eternal work. To record his quartets is certainly to pay homage to the tutelary figure of the classical period, but it is above all to bring to life the musical legacy of the one who, laying the foundations of the genre, has already explored the timbral, formal and stylistic possibilities! To unveil this richness, the young musicians have chosen six quartets in which Haydn is alternately lyrical, baroque, joker or dramatic, from the birth of the genre to his first romantic tremors. If the Hanson Quartet plays with form by defying the listener's expectations (like Haydn himself), and exacerbates certain nuances, the thought of their phrasings is humbly nurtured by historical recordings. The Hansons enter the discography with a composer who looks like them: bold, rebellious and inventive.
