When 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 - then 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 chamber 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, who will perform arias by Puccini and festive song.
