Named the Music Director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields in 2011, he is the only person to hold this post since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958. He has recorded more than 40 CDs garnering Grammy, Mercury, Gramophone and Echo Klassik awards, and is a recipient of the Avery Fisher Prize.  Bell first met the Academy at age 18 when he recorded the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. The Academy of St Martin in the Fields’ first release under Bell’s leadership, Beethoven Symphonies No. 4 and 7, debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts.  Bell’s latest recording with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields of Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy and g minor Concerto will be released in May 19.
