The Academy of St Martin in the Fields, with Tomo Keller, Director, is one of the world’s premier chamber orchestras, renowned for its fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world’s most-loved classical music. Formed by Sir Neville Marriner in 1958 from a group of leading London musicians, the Academy gave its first performance in its namesake church in November 1959. Through its live performances and vast recording output – highlights of which include the 1969 best-seller Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and the soundtrack to 1985’s Oscar-winning film Amadeus – the Academy quickly gained an enviable international reputation for its distinctive, polished and refined sound.
The Academy will feature pianist Inon Barnatan. Celebrated for his poetic sensibility, probing intellect, and consummate artistry, Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan (“ee-NON BAR-na-tan”) currently serves as the first Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic. This unprecedented three-season appointment sees him appear as soloist in subscription concerts, take part in regular chamber performances, and act as ambassador for the orchestra. In 2015-16, he embarks on his second season with the Philharmonic, playing Mozart with Jaap van Zweden, Beethoven under Music Director Alan Gilbert.
