With an illustrious career and extensive discography behind him, Sir Neville Marriner was still performing with the orchestra he founded - the Academy of St Martin in the Fields - when he died at the age of 92.
Neville Marriner was born on 15 April 1924 in Lincoln. He was taught the violin, initially by his father, before entering the Royal College of Music at 13. During the Second World War, while still studying – and when so many orchestral players were serving away - Marriner had the extraordinary experience of playing with great orchestras including the LSO, under such conductors as Sir Henry Wood.
