CityMusic Promotions presents 'Chopin and Champagne by Candlelight', a new concert series in central London on 10 Friday nights in the 2018-19 season (pre-dinner and post-dinner performances on the same evening of the same programme) given by British concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith.

***Due to the intimate size of the venue, tickets for this unique series are extremely limited. Book now to avoid disappointment ***

The brilliant piano music of the great Frédéric 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 10 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 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 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.
