Music Masterclass

Masterclasses are free and open to the public.

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields is one of the world's finest chamber orchestras, renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world's greatest orchestral music. Formed by Sir Neville Marriner in 1958 from a group of leading London musicians, the ASMF gave its first performance in its namesake church in November 1959. Through unrivalled live performances and a vast recording output - highlights of which include the 1969 bestseller Vivaldi's Four Seasons and the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film Amadeus - the orchestra gained an enviable international reputation for its distinctive, polished and refined sound. With over 500 releases in a much vaunted discography and a comprehensive international touring programme, the name and sound of the ASMF is known and loved by classical audiences throughout the world. Today the orchestra is led by Music Director and virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell, retaining the collegiate spirit and flexibility of the original small, conductor-less ensemble which is an ASMF hallmark.

This masterclass is made possible with the collaboration of Duke Arts Presents, presenting Academy of Saint Martin-in-the-Fields Wind Ensemble in concert on Feb. 10 at 8 pm in Baldwin Auditorium. Concert tickets at
