Vivaldi - Four Seasons

After months of lockdown, finally experience a romantic, candlelit evening in a socially distanced, Covid-safe space,  with selections of the world’s greatest classical music in the beautiful St Giles’ Cathedral.  The concert features timeless works by the monumental composers Bach and Vivaldi.  If you’re in need of a relaxing experience and want to learn more about classical music, or just want to hear virtuosic performances by some of the best musicians 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 Sinfonia exists to perform the world’s greatest classical music in the UK’s most historic venues.

The concert features breathtaking feats of virtuosity from The Piccadilly Sinfonietta, in Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and virtuoso concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in Bach’s sparkling Piano Concerto in D major.

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.

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