The partnership of Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields is possibly the most recorded of all partnerships in recorded classical music. This collection brings together three of their very first recordings: A RECITAL, A SECOND RECITAL and ITALIAN CONCERTOS, the three LPs receiving their first complete release on CD. The first two were called ‘Recitals’ in the manner of concert programs, mixing concerti grossi with solo concertos, with the Academy’s principals as soloists. Crispness of ensemble, stylish delivery, flexible and febrile performances, and rich-toned recordings were their hallmarks. This pioneering 2CD set is issued in celebration of the Academy’s 50th anniversary this year and these recordings form part of a series of Marriner reissues on Eloquence.
Three of Marriner’s earliest recordings with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, including his very first, reissued on CD for the first time.
Forms part of a series of recordings with Marriner and the Academy.
“When a British ensemble records a program like this, it sticks its neck out in no uncertain manner. Consciously or unconsciously it challenges every chamber orchestra from Aachen to Zagreb … Here is nearly an hour’s music, played with precision, care, consummate musicianship, and with more sense of style than all the chamber orchestras in Europe put together … Neville Marriner and his Academy are to be congratulated on a magnificent disc debut, and I have no hesitation in declaring this to be one of the three or four most outstanding items in the L’Oiseau-Lyre catalogue” Gramophone Magazine (A Recital’: Corelli, Torelli, Locatelli, Albicastro, Handel)
“There is nothing anonymous about this playing; it positively tingles with life” Gramophone Magazine (A Second Recital’: Manfredini, Albinoni, Avison, Handel, Telemann)

Penguin Guide 1995 3 star
“We have a very soft spot for the sparkle, elegance and wit of these ASMF performances of the Rossini String Sonatas, amazingly accomplished products for a 12-year-old. Marriner offers them on full orchestral strings but with such finesse and precision of ensemble that the result is all gain.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition
