Inspired by ancient philosophy, Beving’s latest project is analbum in search of universal ideas. “I hope that it will have a comforting and communal effect onlisteners,” says the artist. Written during the dark days of the pandemic, in an age of fear andpolarisation,Hermetismblends poignant melancholy with an offer of hope, spanning twelve newtracks recorded on Beving’s cherished Schimmel piano.

Beving has used music to explore some of life’s big philosophical questions in three hugely successfulalbums –Solipsism,PrehensionandHenosis. After his trilogy for Deutsche Grammophon, he was leftwith a question: what next? The answer eluded him atfirst, so he turned to composing for a Dutchfilm and stage play. Yet ideas that had been brewing for years began to take shape. “I came back tothe piano to feel at home and in tune with myself and my surroundings,” notes Beving. “I wanted togo by what felt right, which was to go back to the beginning, to solo piano songs, but usingeverything I had learned during the making of the trilogy.”
