During the 1970s and the 1980s, the phrase “Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields” was so ubiquitous in classical music that The New Yorker ran a cartoon with a parrot squawking their names.
But the London-based ensemble is more than a memory, even if Marriner has moved on. Through seemingly constant reinvention, it continues to be a vital musical force, and its upcoming U.S. tour with soloists Alisa Weilerstein and Inon Barnatan includes a La Jolla Music Society-sponsored concert at the Balboa Theatre on Saturday.
