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.
