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 and virtuoso pianist Warren Mailley-Smith who will be performing 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 'The embodiment of the modern Romantic
Concert pianist’
by Musical Opinion, Mailley-Smith is a
favourite at St Martin's with audiences and staff alike. He 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.
