The Grand Tour - France - Lully to Rameau

Early Music New York
Frederick Renz, director

Lully and Rameau are the twin peaks of the French baroque, masters of opera and the dance. Their instrumental suites abound with airs, allemandes, bourrées, gavottes, gigues, menuets, sarabandes and other baroque dance sensations. Works by colleagues such as Rebel (featuring his programmatic Les Elemens) round out this French experience.

Wexford Festival Opera

Since the first 'Festival of Music and the Arts' took place in October 1951, Wexford Festival Opera has grown into one of the world's leading opera festivals. In 2017 Wexford Festival Opera won Best Opera Festival in the World at the 2017 International Opera Awards.

Right from the beginning, the Festival made a name for itself by introducing audiences to unjustly neglected works, many of which have since found a place in the canon. For 66 years the Festival has breathed new life into forgotten masterpieces, establishing a reputation for high-quality productions that, every year, bring thousands of opera-lovers flocking to Wexford from all over the world.

Chopin & Champagne by Candlelight | November “Ballade No. 4 & Fantasy in F minor”

Warren Mailley-Smith, piano

All compositions are by Frederic Chopin:

Fantasy in F minor op.49 (1841)
Nocturne op.9 (1830-32)No.2 in Eb
Polonaises op.40 No.1 in A ‘Military’
Nocturne No. 20 in C-Sharp Minor, Op. posth.

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 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.

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
