Program notes

Neville Marriner's friendship with the harpsichordist and musicologist Robert Thruston Dart, forged during the war years, proved decisive in the history of British music. They formed both a violin and harpsichord duo and the Jacobean Ensemble, igniting audience interest in their programmes of early and modern chamber music.
