'The principal clarinet of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra has chosen an appealing and diverse programme, from the breezy tunefulness of Miguel Yuste's title work to the operatic flourishes of Antonio Romero's 'Primer Solo del Concierto' to the gymnastics of John McCabe's 'Three pieces for clarinet and piano', all delivered with solid technique and silken tone' (Classical Music)

'Spanish clarinettist Maximiliano Martín demonstrates what 'virtuoso' means in this exciting album of works by a variety of composers. The changes of pace and feeling come swiftly enough, so if John McCabe's 1964 'Three pieces for clarinet and piano' doesn't appeal, the strong partnership between clarinet and piano in Carl Maria von Weber's 'Grand Duo concertant' or a grandly constructed 'Introduction et Rondo' from Charles-Marie Widor more than repay the listening. Two works by Spanish composers Miguel Yuste and Antonio Romero reveal a strong Iberian tradition, while Rabaud's 'Solo de concours' is perhaps the best-known work here. Throughout, Martín is accompanied by pianist Scott Mitchell, who advances and retreats in the soundscape with ease and skill' (Scotland on Sunday)

'Maximiliano Martín konnte sich binnen kürzester Zeit einen exzellenten Ruf als vielseitiger und charismatischer Klarinettist erarbeiten. Neben seinem Engagement als erster Klarinettist beim Scottish Chamber Orchestra widmet sich der junge Spanier immer wieder Solo-Projekten. Gemeinsam mit dem Pianisten Scott Mitchell widmete er sich außergwöhnlichem Repertoire für Klarinette europäischer Komponisten. Die Aufnahme gleicht daher eher einer Rundreise durch Europa, denn die beiden Musiker verbinden auf dieser neuen CD von Linn Records Werke gänzlich unterschiedlicher Komponisten wie Miguel Yuste, Henri Rabaud, Antonio Romero, John McCabe, Charles-Marie Widor und Carl Maria von Weber zu einem Gesamtwerk, das in seiner Gesamtheit dann aber dennoch ein erstaunlich abgerundetes Bild ergibt … festgehalten in erstklassiger Tonqualität begeistern die beiden Meister ihrer Instrumente mit ihrer ganz persönlichen Zusammenstellung europäischen Repertoires für Klarinette und Klavier' (sempre-audio.at, Austria)
