St Martin-in-the-Fields Church
Trafalgar Sq, London, United Kingdom
On Thursday 25th July at 7.30pm, in the heart of London, the walls of St Martin-in-the-Fields will resound to the music of Beethoven and Rachmaninov performed by the stunning Piccadilly Sinfonia, under the baton of international conductor, Colin Touchin.
This evening’s programme offers a feast for your musical senses, with the brilliant Piccadilly Sinfonia and popular British pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in a performance of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Universally loved for its ravishing harmonies, seductive melodies and hugely demanding piano part, Rachmaninov’s 2nd Piano concerto was used extensively in the film ‘Brief Encounter’ and has become one of the most beloved pieces of classical music ever written. The second half of the concert features Beethoven’s masterpiece, the Symphony No. 5 under the baton of the great British conductor, Colin Touchin. This is a rare opportunity for audiences to hear such large-scale forces at St Martin’s and combined with this stunning programme, the event promises to enthral.
Described as 'Stunning' by Classic FM and “Tall and talented, Warren Mailley-Smith is the embodiment of the modern romantic concert pianist" by Musical Opinion, this outstanding pianist is a favourite at St Martin's with audiences and staff alike. Warren Mailley-Smith has performed for the British Royal Family on many occasions and has given acclaimed solo recitals at Carnegie and Wigmore Halls.
Resplendent from its recent renovation, the church of St Martin's offers visitors to London a unique concert experience, with its superb acoustic, beautiful interior and the convenience of dining downstairs beforehand in the crypt restaurant. Set in Trafalgar Square, this beautiful and self-contained venue is conveniently situated in the heart of London’s West End, offering warm, peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the capital. So why not treat yourself and join us for an evening of uplifting music at St Martin's? Book early to avoid disappointment.
