“Maximiliano Martín's long-breathed, seamless, lyrical tone, the bedrock of a gorgeous performance, will compel you to listen anew…”
The Herald (on Linn CKD 273)

“…Brings an energetic freshness and a silvery definition to the Clarinet Concerto.”
The Scotsman (on Linn CKD 273)

Following his acclaimed recording of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto (Linn Records CKD 273) with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, internationally renowned clarinettist Maximiliano Martín releases his first solo disc, continuing his successful partnerships with Linn Records and pianist Inocencio Negrín.

Martín and Negrín's selection represents a fresh, original and coherent collection of European works for clarinet and piano broadly representing the transition from late-romantic to 20th century modernist music.   For the classical buyer looking for something new and different, this disc will make a fascinating listen.   Opening the programme are Lutoslawski's Dance Preludes, written in 1954 shortly after the death of Stalin, who had previously banned the composer's music for not conforming to the Communist ideal.   Poulenc's Sonata for Clarinet and Piano is another highlight: the composer had planned sonatas for all the woodwind instruments but this was one of only three he was able to complete before his death in 1963. The choice of works by Yuste and Romero also gives the disc a Spanish flavour, in keeping with the soloists' nationalities.
