Chopin and Champagne by Candlelight | November 'Ballade No 4 and Fantasy in F minor'

Warren Mailley-Smith, piano

Frederic Chopin:
Fantasy in F minor Op 49 (1841)
Nocturne Op 9 (1830-32) - No 2 in E flat
Polonaises Op 40 No 1 in A 'Military'
Nocturne No 20 in C sharp minor, Op posth
Nocturne Op 15 (1830-33) - No 2 in F Sharp
Mazurka No 23 in D, Op 33, No 2
Nocturne No 21 in C Minor, Op posth
Rondo à la Mazur in F Op 5 (1826)
Ballade No 4 in F minor Op 52 (1842-43)

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 ten separate programmes, one per month from September 2018 to July 2019.

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

The ticket price includes a complimentary glass of Champagne.

Donatella Flick Conducting Competition

'We have thought very carefully about how best my competition can benefit young conductors, and this is why we have decided to change the criteria for applications, broadening reach, while also ensuring that it is conductors at the very start of their careers who benefit. I am delighted to partner with medici.tv for the first live stream of the Competition, and also to allow the public into the preliminary rounds. I believe that the more we can open up music-making to the world, the more people will be as enthralled and inspired by it as I am, so I'm really pleased that so many more people will have the opportunity to see the finalists in action next year. Finally I want to thank the extraordinary conductors and musicians who are on the judging panel, as I know each of them will inspire everyone who takes part. I wish everyone who enters the very best of luck!' - Donatella Flick
