Vivaldi's Four Seasons by Candlelight
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
When the going gets tough in the run-up to Christmas and you've had about as much seasonal music as you can take - think Arndale Shopping Centre and carols round the Norwegian Tree, bands in Oxford Street , choirs in every available church and hall - get yourself over to St Ann’s Square, Manchester. This is just the place to put down your last-minute Christmas shopping, gather your thoughts, and renew your emotional energy.
The Piccadilly Sinfonietta is one of the UK’s most exciting young ensembles and performs a selection of well-loved classics including the seasonal Christmas Concerto by Corelli and Vivaldi’s exquisite Winter, from The Four Seasons.
To celebrate its 11th consecutive year, the Piccadilly Christmas Concert 2019 features the virtuoso concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in performance with the Piccadilly Sinfonietta, with Mozart’s sublime Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major.
The award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family 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 and venue staff alike.
With accolades including first prize and audience prize at Trafford String Player of the Year in 2006, string semi-finalist at the Young Musician of the Year 2006 and Junior Royal Northern College of Music Rohi Gazder Prize winner for violin.
