“Stunning” Classic FM

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.

Audiences can now experience his music across 10 x 1 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.  Warren has performed on many occasions for the British Royal Family and his recordings are featured regularly on Classic FM and BBC Radio.

Alison Balsom: An American Rhapsody

Ives: The Unanswered Question

Copland: Quiet City

Florence Price arr Still: Selection from Dances in the Canebrakes

Rodrigo arr. Gil Evans/Miles Davis: Concierto de Aranjuez

Cage arr. Callum Au: Sonata XVI

Stravinsky: Concerto in D

Gershwin arr. Simon Wright: Rhapsody in Blue (new arrangement)

Britten Sinfonia joins forces with star trumpeter Alison Balsom in a concert harnessing the power and legacy of Miles Davis and the enduring musical influence of the Jazz Age. A shimmering arrangement from Gil Evans’ Sketches of Spain of Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez is punctuated by jazz-inspired works of the 20th century capturing the spirit of downtown New York. An arrangement of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, infused with the rhythms and noises of the modern city, and Copland’s evocative Quiet City, originally written as incidental theatrical music, complete this American-flavoured programme.

Alison Balsom is one of classical music’s most persuasive and engaging ambassadors, as well as a passionate advocate for her instrument, involved in transcribing, arranging and commissioning new works for the trumpet.
