"I always work with music – Schütz, Telemann, Bach, Händel, Vivaldi, Pergolesi, Guillaume de Machaut and Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Purcell, and early composers as well as Gregorian music. They transform my studio into a music room, isolated, separated from the world. […] and I need music like others need drugs.“ H. Hartung 1980
