In the heart of London this evening, the walls of St Johnís Smith Square will resound to the romantic music of Chopin, as British pianist, Warren Mailley-Smith embarks on the first of eleven concerts during which he will perform all of Chopinís 200+ solo works for the piano - from memory!

Described as 'Stunning' by Classic FM and 'The embodiment of the modern romantic concert pianistí by Musical Opinion, this outstanding pianist is a favourite with London audiences and venues alike. Warren Mailley-Smith has performed for the British Royal Family on many occasions and has given acclaimed solo recitals at Carnegie and Wigmore Halls as well as performing with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra .

This evening's concert promises to take the listener on a spell-binding journey of moods and emotions. The audience will be treated to a programme full of poetry and virtuosic display, from some of Chopinís most celebrated works, such as the Minute Waltz, Nocturne in E flat and Military Polonaise, to some of his less well known masterpieces, such as the Rondo No. 1, written when the composer was only 15 and one of his greatest mature masterpieces, the Polonaise-Fantasie.

Set behind the hustle and bustle of Westminster, the church of St Johnís Smith Square offers visitors to London a unique concert experience as the only Baroque concert hall in the UK, with its wealth of history, superb acoustic, beautiful interior and the convenience of its own elegant cafe and restaurant in the downstairs crypt offering concert goers maximum convenience for the perfect evening out.

So why not indulge yourself in a late summer treat and join us for a spectacular evening of uplifting music at St John's Smith Square, performed by this hugely talented British pianist.
