CityMusic Promotions presents “Chopin & Champagne by Candlelight” a new concert series in Central Manchester at St Ann’s Church. The series includes ten separate programmes, one per month from September 2018 to July 2019 given by British Concert Pianist Warren Mailley-Smith.
*** Tickets for this unique series are limited. Book now to avoid disappointment ***
The brilliant piano music of the great Frederic Chopin has never been out of fashion since it first burst onto the international scene in the early 19th century His music wasn’t intended for the great concert halls of today, but for the intimate setting of Parisian Salons. This was the setting where Chopin felt most at ease and improvised many of his works for the first time. Warren Mailley-Smith will perform a selection of Chopin's exhilarating music in the beautiful setting of Manchester’s St Ann’s Church. Concerts include a free glass of champagne and finish by 9pm so there's time afterwards to go on to wine and dine elsewhere in the city.
Warren Mailley-Smith is the first British concert pianist to perform all 233 of Chopin's solo piano works from memory in one series, hailed as “an epic achievement” by the British press. He is currently recording the complete works on the Sleeveless Records label. Having performed at Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, on many of the world's most prestigious cruise liners, on several occasions for the British Royal Family and having his recordings featured regularly on Classic FM and BBC Radio it is no surprise that Classic FM described him as 'Stunning'.
