5599142The Piccadilly Christmas Concert 2017
DateSaturday 9th December 2017
DescriptionWhen the going gets tough in the run-up to Christmas and you've had about as much seasonal music as you can take - think Trafalgar Square and carols round the Norwegian Tree, bands in Oxford Street, choirs in every available church and hall - get yourself over to St James's Church Piccadilly. Virtuoso pianist Warren Mailley-Smith will be entertaining his audience with a programme that is both restful and refreshingly stimulating. This is just the place to put down your last-minute Christmas shopping, gather your thoughts and renew your emotional energy. An award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family, Warren offers a programme of Beethoven and Chopin. In 2016 he became the first british pianist to perform Chopin's complete works from memory. An exceptional talent and a self-deprecating sense of humour, combined with his formidable technical skill and mature musicality, makes him a favourite with audiences and venue staff alike. This year he is joined in a performance of Mozart's sublime Piano Concerto No. 12 by one of the UK's foremost chamber groups - the Veles Ensemble - and the outstanding soprano star, Susan Parkes will perform arias by Puccini and some festive songs. PROGRAMME: Beethoven - Pathetique Sonata in C minor op 13 Brahms - Rhapsody no. 2 in G minor Chopin - Grand Waltz Brillante in E flat Op 18 Mendelssohn - Rondo Capriccioso Liszt - Rigoletto Paraphrase INTERVAL Pachelbel - Canon in D - string quartet Saint Saens - The Swan - cello solo Monti - Czardas - violin solo Mozart - Piano Concerto K414 Puccini - Si, mi chiamano Mimi Adam - O Holy Night
