Chopin & Champagne by Candlelight on Saturday 23rd February 2019

CityMusic Promotions presents

“Chopin & Champagne by Candlelight”

a new concert series in Central Manchester at St Ann’s Church

on 10 Saturday Nights in the 2018-19 season

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. This 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.

Audiences can now experience his music across 10 x 1 hour programmes (from memory) in the beautiful setting of Manchester’s St Ann’s Church - with a complimentary glass of champagne at this conveniently located venue. The series includes 10 separate programmes, one per month from September 2018 to July 2019.

The Pianist

In 2016 Warren Mailley-Smith became the first British concert pianist to perform the complete solo piano works (233 works) of Frédéric Chopin, from memory in one series, hailed as “an epic achievement” by the British press. He is currently recording the complete works between 2017 & 2020. Warren has performed on many occasions for the British Royal Family and his recordings are featured regularly on Classic FM and BBC Radio.
