Maximiliano Martín

Spanish clarinettist Maximiliano Martín is rapidly establishing himself as one of the most exciting and charismatic musicians of his generation.

Martín was born in La Orotava (Tenerife) and studied at the Conservatorio Superior de Musica in Tenerife, Barcelona School of Music, and later at the Royal College of Music in London where he held the prestigious Wilkins-Mackerras Scholarship, graduated with distinction and received the Frederick Thurston and Golden Jubilee Prizes. His teachers have included Joan Enric Lluna, Richard Hosford and Robert Hill.

After being appointed Principal Clarinet of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in 2002 and winning the Young Artists Platform Competition in the same year, Martín has made his debuts at Wigmore Hall London, Queens Hall Edinburgh, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Bridgewater Hall Manchester, St Davids Hall Cardiff, Perth Concert Hall, St George's Bristol, Brighton and Newbury Festivals and overseas at the Tallin Festival, Palau de la Musica Catalana and Teatro Monumental in Madrid.

As a soloist Martín has performed all the major concertos with orchestras such as the SCO, European Union Chamber Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife and Macedonian Philharmonic under the baton of Brüggen, Manze, Antonini, Swensen, McGegan, Canev and de Ridder. In the field of chamber music he has enjoyed collaborations with London Winds, Hebrides Ensemble, Moonwinds Ensemble, Doric String Quartet and with other artists such as Michael Collins, Paul Meyer, Alexander Janiczek, Pekka Kuusisto, Artur Pizarro, Christian Zacharias and Juho Pohjonen.

He has performed in the most important concert halls and international festivals (Vienna, Lucern, London, Salzburg, Brussels, Amsterdam, Rome, Berlin, Hannover, Cologne, Leeds, Miami, Madrid, Zurich, Paris, Edinburgh) with orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Halle Orchestra, Orquesta de Cadaques, Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Munich Kammerorkester and Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia. He has worked with prestigious conductors like Abbado, Haitink, Colin Davis, Mackerras, Marriner, Berglund, Lopez Cobos, Elder, Krivine and Litton. He has been member of the National Youth Orchestra of Spain and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester.

His debut album ‘Fantasía' and the recording of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra were both released by Linn Records to great critical acclaim. In October 2008 he performed the Nielsen Clarinet Concerto with the SCO and André de Ridder which was broadcast by BBC Radio 3. Martín has recently recorded Messiaen's Quatuor pour la fin du Temps with the Hebrides Ensemble, also for Linn Records, which was launched in May 2008 at Wigmore Hall in London.

Martín is active in the field of education: he currently teaches at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and regularly gives master classes in Spain. Martín is one of the Artistic Directors of the "Chamber Music Festival of La Villa de La Orotava" held every year in his home town.

Maximiliano Martín is a Buffet Crampon Artist and performs on Buffet Tosca Clarinets.
