Description
In the history of modern music, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and its founding director Sir Neville Marriner have had arguably the longest and most productive relationship on record, going strong since 1959. In this engagingly written narrative, Christian Tyler, three times nominated for British Press Awards and once for a Pulitzer, guides us through the evolution of this group of freelance musicians, the most recorded in history and likely to remain that way after the collapse of the classical recording industry. Illustrated with color and monochrome photographs as well as original oil sketches of the orchestra, this book chronicles the more than 50-year-long partnership of the group and its storied director Marriner, whose combination of musical knowledge and business acumen helped the orchestra flourish in a constantly changing market. Based on archival material and interviews with players and world-famous soloists who have performed with the group, managers, record producers, and fans, the book includes appendices that contain the chronology of the Academy, a listing of past and present players as well as Chorus members, and a select discography and awards.
