The musical cycle the "Débuts" of the Flâneries Musicales de Reims continues with the Hermès Quartet in a concert dedicated to Dutilleux and Schubert.
The Hermès Quartet is one of the finest promising young quartets. First prize of the Concours International de Musique de chambre of Lyon in 2009 and the Geneva Competition in 2011, the quartet has won one of the first prizes of the prestigious Young Concert Artist Auditions in New York in 2012. These auditions have opened them the door of the most beautiful american stages including the Kennedy Center of Washington and Carnegie Hall in New-York.
For their "Débuts" at the Flâneries Musicales de Reims, the quartet interprets "Ainsi la nuit", a piece composed by Dutilleux, and Schubert's String Quartet No. 14, "Death and the Maiden".
