Come and enjoy an uplifting matinee performance of wonderful music
on Friday 20th December 2019 at 2pm, in the heart of Edinburgh when the walls of St John The Evangelist Church, on Princes Street will resound to exquisite music.
The Piccadilly Sinfonietta, one of the UK’s most exciting young ensembles, is joined by two international soloists: Fenella Humphries and Warren Mailley-Smith. Fenella is one of the UK’s most established and versatile violinists (described in the press as “alluring”, “unforgettable” and “a wonder”). Warren is an award-winning virtuoso pianist who has performed many times for the British Royal Family as well as with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and is the first British pianist to perform Chopin’s complete solo piano works from memory (Classic FM described him as 'Stunning').

Acclaimed classical violinist, concerto soloist and chamber musician who has performed at such prestigious venues as London's South Bank Centre and Cadogan Hall and the the new Helsinki Music Centre. Fenella's solo and chamber performances have included broadcasts for BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, DeutschlandRadio Berlin, West-Deutsche-Rundfunk and BBC and Canadian TV as well as appearances around Europe, North and South America, Korea and Israel. 'Fenella Humphreys's performance is a wonder' (International Record Review) '... Fenella Humphreys is a top-notch violin soloist, producing a pure, sweet tone of piercing beauty...' (James A Altena, Fanfare Magazine) '... Fenella Humphreys is one of the few violinists with the guts and temerity (and the technique demanded by the music) to play Sibelius's chamber music... Sibelius's Opus 81 (1917-18) allowed Humphreys to demonstrate her complete absorption into this magical melodic world...' (Edward Clark, Classical Source).
