Notes & Reviews:

"An attractive recital from the charismatic Spanish clarinettist Maximiliano Martín (currently principal of the SCO) made the more so by superbly clean, clear articulation, balanced by ravishingly long-breathed lyrical phrasing and the highly sympathetic partnership provided by Inocencio Negrín. Martín plays with the widest range of dynamic: the first of Lutosawski's Dance Preludes bursts in on the listener with exhilarating point and momentum, and the remaining four are played with great diversity of character and mood. A memorable performance of Debussy's Rapsodie, luminously languorous, soaringly sensuous, is framed by the two simpler miniatures of Martín's compatriot Miguel Yust Moreno, each combining a languidly seductive melody with a brilliant cadenza. The Poulenc Sonata is piquantly witty; Nielsen's early Fantasy Piece is more simplistic, a song-without-words with a brief lively finale; and the programme ends with an entertaining display piece, full of virtuosity, as Antonio Romero y Andía tests his soloist with plentiful bravura. The recording is exceptionally live and immediate, so that the players are virtually at the end of one's room." -Gramophone

Languorous and brilliant by turns, this star clarinettist's recital is a delight

BBC Music Magazine
Maximiliano Martfn, has an attractive tone, reliable intonation and nimble technique. àfor clarinet buffs there's an early Fantasia by Nielsen; two pieces by the 20th-century clarinet virtuoso and teacher Miguel Yuste Moreno, a Spanish-flavoured 'Picturesque Caprice' and a tuneful 'Melodic Study'; and a 19th-century fantasy on Donizetti by an earlier Spanish clarinettist, Antonio Romero y Andfa.
