The World's Greatest Music
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.
When he himself was called up during World War II, Marriner served in the Royal Navy, participating in motorboat raids into France. He was invalided out of the Navy with kidney damage. After the war he returned to the Royal College of Music and then went to complete his studies at the Paris Conservatoire.
