Take a look at an incredible birthday card to Sir Neville Marriner - from the pens of the Classic FM presenters themselves!
Neville Marriner at 90
A tribute to a great British conductor
Classic FM is hosting a major celebration of Sir Neville Marriner to mark the great British conductor's 90th birthday.
For the first time in its 21-year history, Classic FM will play one conductor's recordings for an entire 24-hour period. On Tuesday 15 April – Sir Neville’s 90th birthday – every single piece of music broadcast on Classic FM will be conducted by him.
Earlier in the month Classic FM devoted a week of special programmes to the conductor culminating in an exclusive broadcast of his 90th birthday concert from the Royal Festival Hall with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields – the ensemble he founded in 1958. Exclusive video of the concert can be seen on this page.
A whole day devoted to the great British conductor on his 90th birthday.
Classic FM's resident rhyme expert, More Music Breakfast presenter Tim Lihoreau, has crafted this most epic of poems in celebration of Sir Neville's 90th birthday - and there's not an albatross in sight!
