One of the finest chamber orchestras in the world, Academy of St Martin in the Fields is renowned for its polished and refined sound, rooted in outstanding musicianship. Formed from a group of leading London musicians, and working without a conductor, the Academy gave its first performance in its namesake church in 1959. Today, the Academy performs some 100 concerts around the world each year, with as many as 15 tours each season. Cellist Alisa Weilerstein and pianist Inon Barnatan join the Academy in a program that includes: Britten’s Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge, Op.10; Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major; Bach’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in D Minor, BWV 1052; and Haydn’s Symphony No.45 in F-sharp Minor, “Farewell.”
