One of the true jewels in the orchestra’s crown, a performer of rare intensity and presence….said the Herald about Martin’s performance of Tuireadh. He is able to switch at a moment from pristine, suspended lyricism to rasping, stabbings shards of sound- all perfectly controlled. The Telegraph also makes echo of Martin’s intense performance saying: a searing performance, hugely charismatic, his innate dramatic sense cones right to the fore. The Times also praises Martin, it was the perfect vehicle for Maximiliano Martin’s evocative clarinet, which shrieked and keened, re-enacting grief in repetitive, anguished lament.
"Martin was a fine soloist in Copland’s Clarinet Concerto", The Guardian.
