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 and London Salons of the aristocracy. This was the setting where Chopin felt most at ease and improvised many of his works for the first time.

Pre-dinner performance  6.30pm   (Champagne Reception @ 6pm)  
After-dinner performance  9.00pm   (Champagne Reception @ 8.30pm)   

Audiences can now experience his music across ten one-hour programmes (from memory) in the beautifully authentic salon-setting of London's 1901 Arts Club - with the accompaniment of a pre–performance champagne reception at this intimate and exclusive venue,     The series includes several programmes between 2021 and 22.
 
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 & 2023.  Warren has performed on many occasions for the British Royal Family and his recordings are featured regularly on Classic FM and BBC Radio.
