The Academy of St Martin in the Fields is just about to turn 60 and almost to the day the orchestra will be celebrating with a concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 12 November 2019 when, directed from the violin by artistic director Joshua Bell the orchestra will perform a programme reflecting on its heritage including Mozart's Symphony No. 25, which features on the Academy’s soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film Amadeus, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor with Joshua Bell as soloist, Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 and the UK premiere of Composer-in-Residence Sally Beamish’s Hover which is dedicated to the memory of Sir Neville Marriner.

The Academy will also be performing the Beamish at Cambridge Music Festival (14 November 2019), and the Academy Chamber Ensemble return to the Wigmore Hall on 15 November with Mozart, Borodin and Dvorak. Further ahead Bell directs the Academy in Edinburgh in January in Bach, Schubert (the Mahler arrangement of the Death and the Maiden Quartet), and Piazzolla, and on tour to the USA in February.
