Hanover Square Quartet
Our repertoire spans the music one plays with gut strings: from the early 1700s to the early 1900s. As this covers four centuries, depending on the repertoire we play on differing set-ups: from baroque & classical to romantic or modern.
We think it important to promote Classical and Romantic music composed by women and ethnic minorities. We currently have three programmes. Listen to Her, championing music by Fanny Hensel and Emilie Mayer; Between Worlds, based around music composed during the Jewish Enlightenment; and Horses and Swordsmen, celebrating the works of Chevalier St. Georges.
We play them alongside the core quartet repertoire of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and their contemporaries.
