Many thanks to our friend Trottar for this rarity
When listening to this album, you are led into a different world. Slow pieces are played wonderfully delicately, the faster ones more powerful and with a lot of temperament. Super sound quality. Only to recommend!

front-small-boxsetLife President of the Academy, Sir Neville Marriner began his career as a violinist, playing first in a string quartet and trio, then in the London Symphony Orchestra. It was during this period that he founded the Academy, with the aim of forming a top-class chamber ensemble from London’s finest players. Beginning as a group of friends who gathered to rehearse in Sir Neville’s front room, the Academy gave its first performance in its namesake church in 1958.
