Vibraciones del Alma
Romero Widor McCabe Rabaud Yuste Weber
Maximiliano Martín - clarinet
Scott Mitchell - piano
Following on from his acclaimed debut album Fantasía, this programme further establishes Martín as a leading advocate and interpreter of Spanish clarinet music with works from Europe's leading clarinet composers Antonio Romero y Andía and Miguel Yuste.
Liverpool-born composer John McCabe personally advised Martín with regard to his performance of Pieces for clarinet and piano for this recording, resulting in an insightful and authentic performance.
Charles-Marie Jean Albert Widor's trademark virtuosity is evident in the Introduction and Rondo, Op.72. Martín more than meets the demands of the great contrasts of beautifully lyrical phrases and technically complex bravura passages.
Maximiliano Martín won the Young Artists Platform Competition in 2002 and has since performed in the most important concert halls and international festivals establishing himself as one of the most talented and charismatic musicians of his generation.
Martín already has many fans as the popular Principal Clarinet for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and has built an enviable reputation as a soloist with acclaimed performances in his birthplace Tenerife and throughout Europe.
Scott Mitchell performs extensively as a chamber music pianist and accompanist. He has been awarded the Lisa Fuchsova Prize for outstanding chamber music pianist and the Eric Rice Memorial Prize for outstanding accompanist, both at the Royal Overseas League Music Competition in London.
Vibracones del Alma is a well-planned programme of some of the best European music for clarinet, played to perfection by Maximiliano Martín accompanied by Scott Mitchell on piano.
