Buffet Artists

Buffet’s dominance in the clarinet world means they have a diverse range of artists around the world.

Andrew Marriner

Andrew held the principal clarinet chair of the London Symphony Orchestra from 1986 to 2019. During his orchestral career he maintained his place on the worldwide solo concert platform alongside an active role in the field of chamber music.

He first played with the LSO in 1977 under Celibidache and as guest principal on their 1983 world tour. He later became principal of the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, under the baton of his late father Sir Neville Marriner, held alongside his LSO commitment until 2008.

During the pandemic lockdown we had the pleasure to host a webinar with Andrew - who plays the Divine and Festival model clarinets.

Martin Frost

Clarinetist, conductor and Sony Classical recording artist, Martin Fröst is known for pushing musical boundaries and has been described by the New York Times as having “a virtuosity and a musicianship unsurpassed by any clarinettist — perhaps any instrumentalist — in my memory”.

In May 2014 Martin Fröst received the Léonie Sonning Music Prize, one of the world’s highest musical honours and the first clarinetist to be given the award. He joins a prestigious list of previous recipients including Igor Stravinsky, Daniel Barenboim and Sir Simon Rattle.
