The Sound of Saturday
With the series of concerts “Lyden af Lørdag//Sound of Saturday” Ensemble Hermes aims to create a recurring event with classical music staged in an informal setting, where both new and accustomed audiences can get close to the musicians and their work with the music.
We hope to gather a mixed bunch of people from different generations and beliefs and together share a moment of beautiful music while enjoying a cup of coffee; to start the weekend with an artistic experience that can both give perspective and open horizons.
Music has a central role in many religions and spiritual contexts. One could say that music is the language of the heart - music is universal and can express deep emotions and states of mind without a single work.
For this Sound of Saturday, Ensemble Hermes invites the audience, with a cup of coffee in their hand, to get very close to the musicians as they discover some meditative works for string quartet.
