Notes & Reviews:

Winning first prize in the II BNDES International Piano Competition in Rio de Janeiro brought Fabio Martino invitations to perform in Brazil, the US and Europe in 2011. That same year, he was also the winner of the BDI International Competition in Munich.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Hearing this 25-year-old Brazilian pianist in his debut recording is another matter entirely. We find a musician of truly impressive ability and imagination. Sonata 1 by Brahms is a bold choice to introduce this artist. "Impressive" is the first word that comes to mind on listening to the performance. The pianist, paying careful attention to phrasing and nuance, has definite ideas as to how the music should go. Schumann's Fantasiestucke Op. 111, Shows us exactly what the benefits are when the pedal is kept under control. The first piece sweeps us along with its passionate writing. Paying homage to his native land, Martino has chosen the work of Brazilian composer Edino Kreiger. Intervallic Etudes definitely breathes the air of Latin America. It's both terrific and memorable. German composer York Holler's Sonata 3, at almost 11 minutes, is a tougher nut to crack. It offers challenges for the player as well as the listener trying to make sense of the almost hallucinogenic happenings. The notes are interesting, and the sound has depth and spaciousness.
