Philip Martin - piano 

Philip Martin gave his first concert aged six and won an ABRSM scholarship to the Royal Academy of music in London, while still in his teens, studying both piano and Composition. He spent three years with pianist-composer Franz Reizenstein, himself a pupil of Paul Hindemith, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Solomon. His time with Reizenstein, and later, his many years of study with Louis Kentner, (also a composer) set the seal on his future musical life where his talents in both areas continued to flourish in equal measure.

Philip has played with most of the major London orchestras as well as the CBSO, Halle, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic etc,  while his numerous recital and concerto performances with all of the BBC Orchestras have added greatly to his extensive Concerto repertoire.

He was honoured with a Professorship at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, part of Birmingham City University, where he taught for over thirty years. Lord Yehudi Menuhin presented him with an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Academy of music in London, and, he is also a member of AOSDANA, Ireland's prestigious Academy of creative artists.
