Founded in 1958 by Sir Neville Marriner and hailed worldwide for its warmth, unity, and virtuosity, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields chamber orchestra brings the music of Mozart and Copland to Stanford Live. Led from the keyboard by the young Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan, who has won acclaim for his "firecracker technique" (Washington Post), they will also perform a new piano concerto by one of the UK's rising young composers, Alasdair Nicolson.
Alasdair Nicolson’s commission is generously supported by The Leche Trust and RVW Trust.
