Biography 
 
The award-winning concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith has made his solo debuts to critical acclaim at Wigmore Hall London and Carnegie Hall, New York.  In 2011 he made his much anticipated debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in a performance of Beethoven’s Emperor Piano Concerto.  In 2014-15 he will be performing Chopin’s complete works for solo piano over a cycle of 11 concerts.

Warren is in increasing demand as a solo concert artist, having been described recently by Classic FM as 'Stunning...', 'Fantastic...'  'Sensational', 'Huge UK talent...', 'Gorgeous...!'  and by BBC Music Magazine as ‘Rising Star – Great Artist of Tomorrow”  .  He was recently featured as CD of the Week and Video of the Week on Classic FM and Classic FM TV respectively.

He has received over thirty invitations to perform for the British Royal Family at Buckingham Palace, Highgrove House and Sandringham House.   
Warren studied at the Royal College of Music where he won numerous postgraduate prizes including a Countess of Munster Award and the French Piano Music Prize.  He then took further private studies with Peter Feuchtwanger and the late Ronald Smith.
Warren’s solo career now sees him performing in festivals and concert venues across the UK, accepting invitations from further afield to perform in Europe and the US.  His concerto repertoire includes works by Rachmaninov, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Mozart and Tchaikovsky and he works regularly with various duo partners. 
Warren is currently in demand for his teaching expertise both privately and in masterclasses. 
He has recorded six CDs (‘Silhouettes’, Chopin ‘Souvenirs’, Beethoven ‘Moonlight Serenade’, Mozart ‘Piano Sonatas’, Liszt ‘Depictions’, ‘Romantic Cello’ and a Live in concert DVD.  2013 sees the release of a new disc of Gershwin’s piano music and plans are underway to record the complete works of Chopin across 2014-15.

 Rapidly establishing himself as one of the best pianists of his generation Warren Mailley-Smith is that rare exceptional talent who turns out to be utterly charming and down to earth with a gentle, self-depreciating sense of humour. Combined with his formidable technical skill and mature musicality, these attributes have made him a favourite for both audiences and St Martin’s staff alike.”  St Martin in the Field, Staff Pick of the Month, Aug 2010
