The Academy has grown to encompass many different forms - from chamber group to symphony-sized orchestra and chorus.
What endures is that the Academy players are drawn from the cream of musical talent, producing a richness of sound and virtuosic skill recognized the world over.
The Academy is perhaps best known for recording the Mozart music used in the Oscar-winning Best Picture Amadeus.
