IT’S 2018 already and although the Christmas and New Year festivities are over, there’s plenty to fend off the January blues at St David’s Hall

You may be back to work now, but Islands in the Stream (Fri 5 Jan) is the ideal opportunity to leave your 9 to 5 worries at the door and celebrates the king and queen of country music, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. The terrific tributes to iconic artists don’t stop there either as Back to Bacharach (Sat 20 Jan) revels in the incredible body of work of one of the world’s most beloved songwriters, Burt Bacharach.

Yet, if you prefer your music with the amps cranked up to 11 then The Classic Rock Show: Guitarist Greats (Fri 26 Jan) is right up your street! Get ready for a night packed full of relentless riffs and soaring solos from the likes of Queen, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and many more. In a similar vein, there’s Steve Steinman’s ever-popular musical Vampires Rock: Ghost Train (Sat 27 Jan), which revels in the fang-tastic tunes of Guns N’ Roses, Meat Loaf and Bon Jovi!

Vampires Rock: Ghost Train
Saturday 27 January 2018, 7.30pm

As usual there’s the usual healthy helping of high quality classical concerts throughout the month. The prestigious International Concert Series continues with a romantic repertoire of Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Dvořák from the Welsh National Opera Orchestra (Sun 14 Jan). There’s more Beethoven on offer too as the BBC National Orchestra of Wales (Fri 19 Jan) perform the legendary German composer’s Ninth Symphony

Meanwhile, the ICS resumes with the supremely talented period ensemble Florilegium (Thurs 25 Jan), who indulge in the Baroque splendour of J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. If that concert sounds likes your cup of tea, then there’s an extra little treat in store with ICS: Soundbites (Sat 27 Jan) programme on Lefel 1 being Bach & Beyond – and the best part is that it’s free of charge!

Plus, if you’re a fan of both ‘The King of Rock’n’Roll’ and classical music, you’ll love Classic Elvis (Sat 13 Jan) as top tributes Gordon Davis and Michael Glaysher combine forces with Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra and Conductor, John Quirk. This special, one-off performance features awe-inspiring orchestral arrangements of Elvis songs from the early Sun Studio recordings and into the movie years before an epic finale in Las Vegas.  

There are also two wonderful Lunchtime Concerts, which provide the perfect way to break up your day.  Firstly, there’s the breathtaking brilliance of identical pianists The Cann Twins (Tues 23 Jan), who have won the Critic’s Choice Awards from both Gramophone and Classic FM. Then acclaimed organist Daniel Moult (Tues 30 Jan) performs a powerful programme of Handel, Mozart and Widor amongst others. Both of these compelling concerts are ‘Pay What You Will’ too!
