Starting at 7pm, this 75 minute programme without interval leaves you plenty of time for drinks or dinner in town afterwards.

Rapidly establishing himself as one of the best pianists of his generation Warren Mailley-Smith is that rare, exceptional talent who turns out to be utterly charming and down to earth, with a gentle, self-deprecating sense of humour. Combined with his formidable technical skill and mature musicality, these attributes have made him a favourite for both audiences and St Martin’s staff alike.” St Martin-in-the-Fields, Staff Pick of the Month

In 2016 Warren Mailley-Smith became the first British pianist to perform Chopin's complete works for solo piano from memory in a series of 11 recitals at St John's Smith Square, hailed by the critics as an "epic achievement". Mailley-Smith will repeat the series at several venues in 2022-23.

He has given acclaimed solo recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall and has performed for the British Royal Family on numerous occasions. One of the busiest concert pianists of his generation, he gives over 100 solo performances per season.

His career has taken him all over the world, with solo performances in Australia, Europe and most recently solo tours in China and the USA. He is a popular soloist on the London concert scene and performs regularly in music societies, festivals and concert halls throughout the UK and abroad.

He has 40 piano concertos in his repertoire, having made his concerto debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. His recordings have been featured by Classic FM as CD of the Week and are featured regularly on Classic FM and the BBC. He is also an active chamber musician and is the Artistic Director of the Piccadilly Chamber Music Series and The Piccadilly Sinfonietta.
