Andrew Marriner retires from LSO

Andrew Marriner retires from LSO

This article was posted on 27 Jul 2019.

Andrew Marriner has announced his retirement from the London Symphony Orchestra after 34 years in as Principal Clarinet. Following a performance of Janáček's Cunning Little Vixen at the Barbican, the 65-year-old was invited to the front of the stage and received a lengthy ovation and personal tribute from chief conductor Sir Simon Rattle.

Marriner first played with the LSO in 1978 and succeeded English clarinettist Jack Brymer as Principal Clarinet in 1986. In an interview for the LSO website, Marriner said: "among the highlights of my 41-year association with the Orchestra have been the 1983 world tour, forming and being part of a wonderful collaborative wind section and enjoying listening to some of the greatest orchestral playing over the years. It would be invidious to pick out particular concerts: suffice to say that the LSO has always given its all on the concert platform and this has resulted in some of the most inspired music-making you could ever wish to be a part of."
