Formed in 2008 in Lyon, the Hermes Quartet has studied with the greatest masters and has received numerous awards. Like the famous messenger of Greek mythology, the artists aim to act as intermediaries between composers and audiences around the world. The Carnegie Hall in New York, the Forbidden City in Beijing or the Wigmore Hall in London are among the halls that have made their mark. They are also present in all major festivals. From 2012 to 2016, the Quartet was in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Chapel. It is one of the first to have recorded the three quartets by Schumann.
