Giulio Il Romano
A concert for Caccini (1551-1618)

From Palazzo Bardi, where the Florentine Camerata met and conjured the new form of opera, where this program was previously presented on the Salon/Sanctuary Florence series, a commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Giulio Caccini, founding member of the Camerata and one of the first composers of opera, comes to New York, performed by a Roman and Florentine ensemble.

Ensemble Ricercare Antico takes its name from the diffused compositional process of the sixteenth century which flourished throughout the 1500s and reached its apogee in the works of G. Frescobaldi (1583-1643) before merging into the genre of the Fuga.

The group, founded by Serena Bellini (recorders) and Francesco Tomasi (theorbo, lute, and baroque guitar) is a collective of various musicians and singers directed by Francesco Tomasi. Since 2007 the members of Ricercare Antico have been constantly engaged in an intense concert activity in Italy and Europe with the most prestigious ensembles of ancient music including: "Concerto Italiano", the "Freiburger Barockorchester", "Cappella Mediterranea", "Auser Musici", "L'Estravagante", "Arte Musica", "La Venexiana", "Pera Ensemble."

Ricercare Antico is dedicated to the performance of previously unheard repertoire from the transitional period between the Renaissance and Baroque. Among the future projects, a monographic program on G.G. Kapsberger entitled "Il tedesco della tiorba" and another one focused on the early compositions by B. Marini.

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 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 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
