Sir Neville Marriner

Conductor

Sir Neville Marriner

Born in Lincoln in 1924, Marriner studied in London, Paris and Maine and began his working life as a violinist. He founded the Academy of St Martin in the Fields (named after the Trafalgar Square church where the ensemble gave its first concert) in 1959 and together they have enjoyed a prolific recording career on labels such as Decca, Philips and EMI Classics, embracing repertoire from Corelli to Stravinsky, with Mozart and twentieth-century English music as specialities. Marriner’s career has also taken him to the States and mainland Europe, with conducting posts in Los Angeles, Minnesota and Stuttgart.

Marriner was knighted in 1985, following a CBE six years earlier; now in his tenth decade, he continues to perform and record widely.

Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 12 & 17

Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 12 & 17


Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 12 in A major, K414

Piano Concerto No. 17 in G major, K453


Austrian pianist Alfred Brendel is one of the most important exponents of the German-Viennese classic and romantic traditions, whose intellectual rigor and poetic spirit has enriched the public for more than 60 years.

The main focus throughout his extensive concert and recording career has been on interpreting Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann and Brahms.

Being one of the founding fathers of the German-Viennese classical tradition, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s contribution to music history speaks for itself. More specifically, one of his greatest achievements in composition is the piano concerto. While improvising and experimenting from the keyboard, he masterly combined instrumental and operatic styles. This interaction between instrumental and operatic elements can particularly be heard in the last movement of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17, which on this album is coupled with his Piano Concerto No. 12. This latest release in PENTATONE’s remastered Classics series presents a 1970 Philips Classics recording of the two piano concertos in a performance by Alfred Brendel, with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields conducted by Sir Neville Marriner.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Alfred Brendel, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Sir Neville Marriner. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Souvenir de Florence, Op. 70

arranged for string orchestra

Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Sir Neville Marriner


Although the orchestra was the most natural vehicle for Tchaikovsky’s colourful and emotionally highly-charged music, in his string quartets (all dating from the 1870s) he showed a fine understanding of the medium and adopted a more purely musical train of thought – deriving in part from his deep fondness for the classical world of Mozart – without losing his own personality. Souvenir de Florence, his string sextet, dates from 1890–91 and Tchaikovsky confided in his friend Alexander Siloti that he feared he was thinking in orchestral terms before arranging his ideas for string sextet; the work is performed here in a version for string orchestra, from a much-praised Argo recording with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, which went on to win an EDISON AWARD.

‘beautifully natural and well-blended sound’ (String Quartets)

“The Gabrieli's survey of Tchaikovsky's String Quartets is more lyrical than dramatic, while a slow-burning string-ensemble performance of Souvenir de Florence makes a useful filler.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2014 ***

“beautifully natural and well-blended sound” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 1978 (String Quartets)

“the Gabrielis give a finely conceived performance, producing well-blended tonal quality” Penguin Guide

Hark! The Herald-angels Sing – Church bells


Academy & Chorus of St. Martin in the Fields, Sir Neville Marriner

The story of the birth of Jesus more than two thousand years ago has been the source of inspiration for countless poets and musicians, as well as practitioners of other forms of art. The infant, born of a virgin in a lowly cattle shed, because there was no room in the inn; the angel of the Lord appearing to shepherds in the field and bringing them tidings of great joy; three kings, led by a star, bearing their precious gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh: these are elements of the Gospel narrative which have rekindled the imagination of successive creative artists, providing a wealth of vocal and instrumental music with which to celebrate the festival of Christmas.

The music, which is sung and played today in Christian churches and in concert halls, spans several centuries and embraces many styles, ranging from elaborate works such as the Weihnachts-Oratorium (Christmas Oratorio) by Johann Sebastian Bach and L’enfance du Christ (The Childhood of Christ) by Hector Berlioz to simple hymns and carols.

With their typical clean, vital, buoyant style, Neville Marriner and the Academy bring a liveliness and joy to this selection, which begins and ends with the sound of church bells, and interweaves favourite carols with Christmas classics by Bach and Berlioz.
