Since their formation in 2007, Empirical have established their reputation as risk-takers, both musically and beyond. Returning to WMC as Nimmo Artists in Residence for 2020, the Quartet will be joined by acclaimed jazz pianist and former WMC Artist in Residence Gwilym Simcock for a unique chamber jazz performance to kick off their year-long residency in style.

Featuring original music from both Empirical’s and Gwilym’s back catalogues, this one-off collaboration promises to be a feast for all jazz lovers.
