About

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 earliest concerto recordings: Baroque Trumpet Concertos, Recital for Strings and 18th-Century Flute Concertos, the three LPs receiving their first complete release on CD.

John Wilbraham and Claude Monteux were, respectively, the trumpet and flute soloists on these recordings. 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 in 2011 and these recordings form part of a series of Marriner reissues on Eloquence.

Contains some playing of uncommon brilliance … John Wilbraham is one of the most athletic, clean-toned and brilliant of trumpeters today’ [‘Baroque Trumpet Concertos’: Telemann, Albinoni, Hertel, Fasch] - Gramophone

The most alert string-playing distinguishes this record … first-class quality of recording throughout’ [‘Recital for Strings’: Telemann, Gabrieli, Vivaldi, Handel] - Gramophone
