When the going gets tough in the run-up to Christmas and you've had about as much seasonal music as you can take, with carol choirs in every available church and hall - get yourself over to the Concert Room at. St George’s Hall, Liverpool . This is just the place to put down your last-minute Christmas shopping, gather your thoughts, and renew your emotional energy.

The Piccadilly Sinfonietta is one of the UK’s most exciting young ensembles. For their Liverpool debut they will be performing a selection of well-loved classics including the seasonal Christmas Concerto by Corelli and Vivaldi’s exquisite Winter, from The Four Seasons.

The concert features breathtaking feats of virtuosity from the sensational violinist, Martyn Jackson, and the virtuoso concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in a performance of Mozart’s sublime Piano Concerto No 21 in C major.

Mailley-Smith has played many times for the Royal Family, has performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, at Carnegie Hall in New York and the Wigmore Hall in London. He recently 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, make him a favourite with audiences and venue staff alike. One of his CDs has been featured as Classic FM's CD of the Week when he was described as "Stunning!"

Famously described by Charles Dickens as “The most perfect room in the world", St George’s Hall is situated directly opposite Liverpool Lime Street Station and offer visitors to Liverpool an easily accessible musical treat, with its superb acoustic, beautiful interior and the convenience of all the bars and restaurants of the city on its doorstep.
