We are delighted to be able to share the news that Sir Neville Marriner has agreed to unveil our plaque to Haydn on 24 March. Sir Neville Marriner celebrated his 90th birthday last year, an event that was an opportunity for everyone to reflect on the conductor’s unique and sustained contribution to the musical life of this country. As the founder of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Marriner has always been noted for his performances of later 18th century music, his huge recording legacy, and his work in the fine Milos Forman film of Mozart’s life Amadeus (1984), for which Marriner supervised the soundtrack recording.

Details for the unveiling of the plaque at 18 Great Pulteney Street are still to be finalised but we hope that you will be able to join us there on the 24 March at midday.
