About the Event

For an extraordinary evening of piano classics, visit the impressive Manchester Cathedral in Manchester to hear the masterpieces of Ludwig van Beethoven, George Gershwin, Frederic Chopin, Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff, Claude Debussy and Franz Liszt.

Renowned British concert pianist Warren Mailley‐Smith performs a selection of sensational classical and romantic works for solo piano. Treat yourself and your friends/family to an afternoon of outstanding music in the beautiful setting of Manchester Cathedral.

In 2016, Warren Mailley‐Smith became the first British pianist to perform all of Chopin's works for solo piano from memory in a series of 11 concerts at St. John's Smith Square. Mailley‐Smith was hailed by critics as an 'epic achievement' and will repeat the series at various venues in 2022‐2024. He has given acclaimed solo concerts at Wigmore Hall and Carnegie Hall and performed on numerous occasions for the British Royal Family. He is one of the busiest concert pianists of his generation, giving over 100 concerts last year.
