‘A quiet revolt against the madness.’ – Joep Beving

After captivating audiences with his sold-out performance in 2017, Dutch pianist and neo-classical master Joep Beving makes his long-awaited return to the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall stage. Performing his latest work, Hermetism, an immersive audio-visual experience developed in collaboration with artists Boris Acket, Merijin Versnel and Roxanne Percobic, the classical narrative of the piano concert is transformed into an unparalleled experience.

Witness beautifully melodic, deeply introspective piano music paired with Acket’s ethereal visual installations as Beving blends poignant melancholy with an offer of hope. Inspired by ancient philosophy, Hermetism reflects the artist’s fascination with the spiritual and the unknown, taking listeners on a journey into the depths of human emotion and contemplation.

Describing his works as ‘simple music for complex emotions,’ Beving has established himself as one of the most streamed pianists of our time with over half a billion streams, ending up in Spotify playlists alongside artists such as Max Richter, Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm. Don’t miss the return of a global phenomenon, in what promises to be his most meditative and powerful performance yet.
