Contemporary Classical and Cocktails in the L3 Lounge
nightmusic is our new contemporary music series. Bringing together some of the most exciting and distinctive musical voices working today, it’s an easy-going way to explore new directions in music – from electro-acoustic soloists to convention-flouting ensembles – and to enjoy thrilling performances from leading young British performers. 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 Ty Cerdd.
All nightmusic performances take place in the intimate setting of St David’s L3 Lounge, with atmospheric lighting and spoken introductions from the performers to open up their musical worlds. Every event will be as informal as it is immersive, with plenty of opportunities to talk to the artists between sets. Whilst you’re here you can make good use of our lovely new gin bar and, to get you going, we even include your first drink in the ticket price.
Cool contemporary sounds and chilled cocktails – a classic combination.
The first saxophonist to make it to the final of BBC Young Musician finalist Jess Gillam is a persuasive advocate for her instrument’s contemporary classical credentials, and a versatile performer in any genre. For her St David’s Hall debut she’s joined by her podcasting companion, pianist Zeynep Ozcusa and bassist Andee Price for an eclectic programme that ranges from Michael Nyman, Chick Corea, George Gershwin and David Bowie. The programme will also feature a new Tŷ Cerdd commission from a Welsh composer.
