The Academy of St Martin in the Fields - one of the finest chamber orchestras in the world - is renowned for its polished and refined sound, rooted in outstanding musicianship. Formed in 1958 from a group of leading London musicians, and working without a conductor, the Academy gave its first performance in its namesake church on 13th November 1959. Today, the Academy performs some 100 concerts around the world each year, with as many as 15 tours each season. The Academy's Music Director is acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell.  The program is to include:

  • Britten - Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge, Op.10
  • Haydn - Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major -- Alisa Weilerstein, cello
  • Bach - Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor, BWV 1052 -- Inon Barnatan, piano
  • Haydn - Symphony No.45 in F-sharp minor ‘Farewell’

The Academy’s partnership with its founder Sir Neville Marriner remains the most recorded pairing of orchestra and conductor and, with over 500 recordings under its belt, the Academy is one of the most recorded chamber orchestras in the world. Originally directed by Sir Neville from the leader’s chair, the collegiate spirit and flexibility of the original small, conductorless ensemble remains an Academy hallmark.
