Product Description

Product Description

“The range of music covered by Neville was quite astonishing, and was devoured by him with enormous energy and enthusiasm. I was privileged to be there for that magical period of recording history” Chris Hazell, Producer

This 28 CD box set includes the Argo jewels from Marriner’s early recording days with the chamber orchestra he founded in 1958, The Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

The edition spans the years 1964-1981, and includes a bonus CD of the first recordings from 1961.The collection concentrates on the Argo years, when the pattern for the Academy’s success was set. Winning performances by soloists such as Alan Loveday and Iona Brown — who in 1974 became Marriner’s successor in directing from the violin – were a key part of the fabric of the Academy’s unique sound. Highlights in this box include the legendary recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and full performances of Handel’s Messiah and Mozart’s Requiem.

    This is an outstanding set of CDs and excellent value. It includes many classic and even definitive recordings which I remember from their first appearance on LP. Neville Marriner and the ASMF set the standard for chamber orchestras for much of the 1970s and 1980s and some of their finest performances are included in this box. Like many other people I discovered the works of Handel, Vivaldi and the like from listening to Marriner but this set goes far beyond what might be considered his core repertoire to encompass a wonderful account of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and lovely discs of works by Rossini, Weber, Mendelssohn, Fauré, Vaughan Williams and Copland, to name but a few.

    As well as Marriner's Argo recordings the set contains reissues from the ASV label. The sound is excellent for its age. There is an attractive and informative booklet, each of the discs is in its own cardboard slipcase featuring cover artwork from the original LPs and the 28 CDs are housed in a sturdy and easily manageable box. Unmissable at this price.and highly recommended. A fitting tribute to a great musician.

    There is no doubt about the quality of the performances over these years and the way in which the various compositions are interpreted. I bought these as a record of Sir Nevilles achievement with his orchestra, and to replace some aging records with pops ansd scratches.

    However I mark down the quality of the recordings themselves. In some cases the vinyl sounds better. I do not think any thought has been given to the reissue of these works. I may be wrong but to my ears the CD master has been taken on some of these,not the original mastertapes. As a result the early CD pressings with all that harsh treble seems to have been transferred. I am currently listening to a suraphone box set recording of 1977 with the Czech Phil and the sound is much better. I had hoped for the original tapes from Decca but alas no.

    Sir Neville and the orchestra were ahead of their time. They were superb technicians and, even more important, they knew how to play the music. There has been great debate about modern interpretation as opposed to the past recordings. Sir Neville showed that when a performance is right it transcends time. This box is full of treasures and is so much more than a trip down memory lane. I haven't had time to listen to everything, but most of the discs sampled show a lightness of touch and a great understanding of the composers and their music. I wouldn't want to listen to his Messiah that often (I find the choir rather bland and I'm not keen on some of the ornamentation) and I was surprised that the soloist in one of the Telemann concertos was badly out of tune. This is a good bargain and lots of wonderful music to enjoy. Buy it.
