Join us for our latest Bechstein Session, as part of a new series of informal performances in the Bechstein Bar, which offer a platform for emerging artists. Winners of the Tunnell Trust Awards 2016, Park Lane Group Young Artists 2015/16 and Nonclassical’s Battle of the Bands 2014, The Hermes Experiment is a contemporary quartet. Capitalising on its deliberately idiosyncratic combination of instruments, the ensemble regularly commissions new works, as well as creating its own innovative arrangements and venturing into live free improvisation.
