"Hänsel was first and foremost a composer of chamber music. Taking Haydn as his point of departure, he approached the style of Schubert without displaying any influences of Beethoven... From op. 17 onward his compositions were well received by the critics." Hubert Unverricht in MGG2. (Inventory #: 25712)
