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.
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.
The Belmont Ensemble of London was founded by its Musical Director, Peter Dyson in 1991, winning instant critical acclaim. It is now one of the busiest and finest chamber orchestras in the capital.
The Belmont Ensemble was the pioneering force in establishing the famous series of baroque concerts at St Martin-in-the-Fields in the early 1990s. They have now given over 500 concerts at the famous Trafalgar Square Church, where they are firmly established as one of the most popular of the principal orchestras, attracting large international audiences to their regular concerts. A seasoned fixture on the London musical scene, the orchestra receives no subsidies or sponsorship, relying purely on enterprising programming and box office receipts.
The orchestra has also performed regularly at London’s Southbank Centre and at numerous Festivals and Music Societies around the country, from Somerset to Sussex and Ludlow to Northampton.
Belmont have broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, Channel 4 and Five Television and have recorded an eclectic range of CDs from Vivaldi and Mozart to Bach and Walton.
