New Season of Contemporary Classical in the L3 Lounge

New Season of Contemporary Classical in the L3 Lounge

St David’s Hall
October 2019 – May 2020 


nightmusic is the exciting contemporary series at St David’s Hall, and it's coming back with a stunning showcase of Britain’s leading experimental artists!

Featuring four captivating concerts across the 2019/20 season, nightmusic presents some of the most thrilling and distinctive voices working today in an easy-going way, which allows you to explore unfamiliar genres. In partnership with Associate Composer, Freya Waley-Cohen, nightmusic will play a part in creating the next generation of chamber music, as we premiere music by the best young Welsh composers to feature in each event, courtesy of Tŷ Cerdd. As an added incentive, we’ll even include your first drink within the £10* ticket price!

Tŷ Cerdd @ nightmusic
Monday 28 October 2019, 8pm 

The  season starts in style with Tŷ Cerdd @ nightmusic (Mon 28 Oct) featuring a mesmerising mix of harp, violin, piano and electronics from Angharad Davies, Tim Parkinson and Rhodri Davies. Cutting-edge composition and improvisation take centre-stage for thrilling new works from the likes of Gorwel Owen (acclaimed producer & musician with Super Furry Animals / Gruff Rhys, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci / Euros Childs & Datblygu), prodigious pianist Siwan Rhys, revered flautist Heledd Francis Wright and more.

Mainly Two, George Fu & Thomas Ang
Tues 14 January 2020, 8pm 

In the New Year, there's a dynamic mix of talent as virtuoso violin duo Mainly Two (Tues 14 Jan) split the bill with breathtaking pianists George Xiaoyuan Fu and Thomas Ang.

Tabea Debus & Laefer Quartet
Tuesday 14 April 2020, 8pm 

The charismatic and vibrant Tabea Debus (Tues 14 April) mixes baroque staples with contemporary workouts to give recorder music a major reboot. Tabea is joined by the feisty saxophones of the Laefer Quartet, whose eclectic mix includes several new commissions alongside lively re-workings of timeless classics.

Sean Shibe
Tuesday 12 May 2020, 8pm 

The 2019/20 nightmusic season closes with the incredible and innovative Sean Shibe (Tues 12 May), who is every bit as mesmerising with a Fender Stratocaster as he is armed with a lute! You’ll never think of classical guitarists in the same way again after hearing the RPS Young Artist Award winner. His ground-breaking, earth-shaking softLOUD project really shook things up, so expect some seriously seismic moments in this exhilarating event.

All nightmusic performances take place in the intimate setting of the L3 Lounge amid atmospheric lighting and spoken introductions from the performers to open up their musical worlds. Every evening will be as informal as it is immersive, with plenty of opportunities to talk to the artists between sets.

Cool contemporary sounds and cold drinks in a chilled environment; nightmusic provides a classic combination – and it’s coming soon!
