Warminster Festival’s Headline Performance 
for this year, featuring Frida Backman 
who is travelling from 
Scandinavia to perform in Warminster. 
Finnish solo violinist Frida Backman first appeared 
as a concerto soloist at the age of nine. 
She has since performed the violin concertos 
by Sibelius, Barber, Bach, Tchaikovsky and Brahms.
Alongside the beloved classics she is a keen promoter 
of rare Finnish concertos and chamber works to
audiences in the UK and Finland. 

In 2016 Warren Mailley-Smith became the first 
British pianist to perform Chopin's complete works 
for solo piano from memory in a series of 11 recitals 
at St John's Smith Square.
Hailed by the critics as an "epic achievement", 
Mailley-Smith will repeat the series 
at several venues in 2017-18.
The concert will feature works by Kreisler, 
Chopin, Brahms, Prokofiev, Sibelius,
and popular works by Massenet and Monty.
