In the 1950s, he founded Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, the first British early music ensemble to find a large international audience. Marriner has since become one of the most popular conductors in the world, acclaimed for his interpretations of composers from Bach to Britten.

Marriner was first taught the violin as a child, by his father, and attended the Royal College of Music, beginning at age thirteen. Wounded during World War II, he met future collaborator Thurston Dart during his hospitalization. In 1948 he became professor at the Royal Academy of Music. As well as joining the Martin String Quartet as second violin, he formed a violin-and-harpsichord duet with Dart, and their performances led to the formation of the Jacobean Ensemble, an early music group that recorded the Purcell trio sonatas in 1950. Around this time, he began studying conducting with Pierre Monteux at Monteux’s school in Maine. Marriner’s reputation in general music circles also grew; in 1956 he was appointed principal second violin with the London Symphony Orchestra.
A turning point came in 1959, when Marriner was asked to supply music for the church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, in London’s Trafalgar Square. Marriner formed a chamber orchestra which he named the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. The group’s work attracted the attention of the Decca imprint L’Oiseau Lyre, which recorded its performance of Couperin’s Les Nations. Favorable reviews and unexpectedly robust sales of this recording led to more recordings for L’Oiseau Lyre and its sister label Argo, and by the end of the 1970s the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields had become the best-selling chamber orchestra in recorded music’s history. The group expanded from 13 players to twenty or more, and performed Classical symphonic works and twentieth century British music as well as Baroque material. The sound of Marriner’s Academy recordings is crisp, with an extremely bright sound, using period performance standards with modern instruments. Marriner’s name remains closely associated with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and the group now has more than 300 recordings to its credit. These include the soundtrack for the 1984 film Amadeus, for which Marriner selected, arranged, and directed works of Salieri and Pergolesi, in addition to Mozart.
