New role for Martín at St Andrews

New role for Martín at St Andrews

This article was posted on 14 Oct 2021.

Spanish clarinettist Maximiliano Martín is set to become the first honorary professor of woodwind at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Martín already has an association with the university through his role as principal clarinet of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, which has been the university’s orchestra in residence for more than a decade. In his new role, Martín will work with woodwind students as a teacher, chamber music coach and collaborator to staff and students, as well as giving concerts and public masterclasses.

Michael Downes, the University’s Director of Music, said: “Maxi is an extraordinary musician: whether as a soloist, chamber musician or a member of an orchestra, and whatever the repertoire, his playing always brings the music to life in a fresh and exciting way. He is a generous collaborator and an inspirational teacher who brings out the best in young performers of every standard.”

Martín will launch his professorship with a lunchtime concert at the university’s Laidlaw Music Centre on Wednesday 6 October. A recital he recorded at the same venue in November 2020 with pianist Scott Mitchell is also available to watch on YouTube, and several of his recordings are available to listen on Spotify.
