I would interprete 'quartal harmony' here as harmony based on fourths, which the sonata very clearly is (did someone say Gregson?). Therefore it is indeed tonal, and I must agree with 'No' that the tonal centre is Bb, and that Hindemith structures the tonal centres well, ending up in Bb again in the last variation of the last movement.
