On Friday May 22nd, in the heart of Sheffield the walls of Sheffield Cathedral will resound with the music of Vivaldi, Bach, Handel, and Chopin, played by Martyn Jackson, Warren Mailley-Smith, and the Piccadilly Sinfonietta.

Experience a romantic, candlelit evening with selections of the world’s greatest classical music in the gorgeous Sheffield Cathedral. The concert features timeless works by the monumental composers, Chopin, Handel, Bach, and Vivaldi. If you’re in need of a relaxing experience, want to learn more about classical music, or just want to hear virtuosic performances by some of the best, young performers in the UK, this concert is just for you.

The Piccadilly Sinfonietta is one of the UK’s most exciting young ensembles. Founded in 2018, the ensemble has performed in halls throughout the UK including London, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Manchester and further afield. The Piccadilly Sinfonietta exists to perform the world’s greatest classical music in the UK’s most historic venues.

The concert features breath-taking feats of virtuosity from violinist sensation, Martyn Jackson, in Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and virtuoso concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto.

Award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family, Warren Mailley-Smith, 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, makes him a favourite with audiences.

British violinist Martyn Jackson has been acclaimed by The Berliner Morgenpost as “a truly sensitive musician, impassioned playing and utterly compelling” and as “stunning, a player of great intensity .... a remarkably accomplished young violinist” by MusicWeb International. Martyn's recent concert schedule has included solo and chamber music performances at the Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Musikverein, Berlin Konzerthaus, Queen Elisabeth Hall, Gasteig Philharmonie, Purcell Room and King's Place. As a soloist, he has appeared with the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra and Berliner Capella. He has performed chamber music with principle players from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in Milan and Rome.

So why not treat yourself to a spectacular evening and join us for a concert to remember of uplifting music.
