HD-Vinyl 24/96 (EMI) Sir Neville Marriner & The Academy Of St. Martin-in-the-Fields

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.
