Hanson Quartet

In April 2016 Musethica keeps working on the education of musicians all around the world through its initiative Musethica Mastering Performance Program in Spain. This month we have two promising French quartets sharing protagonism: Akilone and Hanson quartet.

CR9P1253 (2)The young Hanson Quartet is one of the most promising quartets of France. It is formed by the musicians Anton Hanson (violin), Jules Dussap (violin), Gabrielle Lafait (viola) and Simon Dechambre (cello). Thanks to its noteworthy and exceptional stage presence, Quatuor Hanson won the 3rd Prize and Audience Prize at the 11th International Competition for String Quartet in Lyon in April 2015. The quartet was also awarded a scholarship (Bourse de l’Académie des Beaux Arts) at the 2014 edition of the European music ensemble competition run by FNAPEC.

Since 2015, the four musicians have been in residence at the Fondation Singer-Polignac. Having now graduated from the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris, this French string quartet receives regular coaching from Hatto Beyerle, Johannes Meissl, and the Ebène Quartet.

Hanson quartet’s members invest a great deal of effort into researching and understanding the musical language. And thanks to their perfect knowledge of the musical repertoire that historically underpins the string quartet genre, especially that of Joseph Haydn, Quatuor Hanson have come to strongly identity with a type of discourse where intelligence and a touch of humour flavour the delicacy and the sensitivity of its interpretation.

The ensemble has performed in most large halls in France, including the Auditorium de la Maison de la Radio in Paris, the Opéra de Lyon, Salle Cortot, and Cité de la Musique, and is regularly invited to play throughout Europe (Germany, Norway, England, Austria, Italy, Switzerland).
