Pianist Emmanuel Vass performs at a unique London venue in a concert hosted by the innovative South London Concert Series.
Described by ‘The Independent’ as “one to watch” and named as BBC Music Magazine’s March “rising star”, Emmanuel has been praised for his suave showmanship and his ability to merge traditional classical piano repertoire with his own transcriptions of popular music.
His concert at London’s Brunswick House is complemented by supporting performances from talented amateur pianists from the London Piano Meetup Group in a programme featuring music by Turina, Granados and Chopin.
The concert takes place in the opulent Saloon at Brunswick House, a Georgian mansion just five minutes from London’s Vauxhall Station, flanked by the brand new 5-star hotel and luxury apartments of One Nine Elms. Brunswick House, part of the London Architectural Salvage and Supply Co, is a treasure trove of antiques and curiosities and offers a wonderful and eclectic venue for a fine evening of music making and conviviality.
Ticket price includes a glass of Prosecco on arrival, and guests are invited to join the performers and hosts in the restaurant afterwards for dinner.

Created and co-curated by Lorraine Liyanage and Frances Wilson, the South London Concert Series is a new concert concept which gives talented amateur musicians the opportunity to perform alongside professional artists in a formal concert setting in some of London’s most beautiful and intimate venues. The series has a special accent on lesser-known and rarely-played piano repertoire and actively supports young and emerging talent.
“A wonderfully creative idea”
Peter Donohoe, international concert pianist
“The South London Concert Series is both innovative and traditional. Events blend an appreciation of fine music and music making with conviviality, and blur the artificial distinctions between professional and amateur”
James Lisney, international concert pianist
