The Hanson Quartet present an unexpected nocturnal odyssey. From Bartók's folk influences, including Central Europe and Maghreb, to Dutilleux's impressionist prints in Ainsi la nuit, and of course Ligeti's masterful Métamorphoses nocturnes, this recording gives us the opportunity to discover a moving, tireless and very lively night. It thus reveals a mysterious landscape, shifting constantly between consciousness and sleep, between dream and hallucination, and in constant mutation. After a Haydn album acclaimed by critics, awarded Diapason d'or of the year 2020, the Hanson Quartet gets back in the studios with an journey among the most beautiful chamber music works.
