The Piccadilly Chamber Music Series launches on Friday 26 January, featuring international cello star Rowena Calvert and violinist extraordinaire, Rhys Watkins, (1st violin in the LSO) joining forces with the brilliant concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in a programme of amazing piano trios. All 3 performers have worked together for years (Rowena and Rhys are married!) but this is their first collaboration as a trio.   

Pianist Warren Mailley-Smith says “chamber music is pretty unique and is basically about as much fun as you can have as a performer. On the one hand each musician is a team player, supporting the others, but there is also huge scope to react and be spontaneous, which you can’t get in a solo or orchestral concert. You’re having a conversation through the music. And the piano trios we’ve chosen are brilliant pieces; very accessible and uplifting.”

Some of the UK’s greatest musicians will perform in the five concerts, running from January to June.  Each concert has a different line up of performers including Zoe Beyers, violinist (leader of the CBSO) Matthew Jones, violinist, (Head of Chamber Music at Guildhall School of Music), and Ruth Palmer, violinist (international soloist). All 5 concerts will cover Beethoven’s complete Piano Trios and each concert also features a work by a living composer plus a romantic masterpiece.
