Together, Australia’s premier baritone José Carbó and one of Australia’s best known pianists, John Martin take you on an emotional musical journey. An hour of beautiful songs with piano in Italian, Spanish, French, German and English from all periods of music including some ballads of the modern era.
John Martin’s work is very familiar to concertgoers and listeners to Australia’s classical radio networks. He is a former recipient of grants for overseas study from the Australia Council Music Board and Opera Foundation, and he studied in England with pianists Clifford Benson and Paul Hamburger. John has been MD for Australia’s got talent winner Mark Vincent and for the Australian Tenors. He maintains a very busy concert schedule, frequently partnering many of Australia’s best-known classical singers and instrumentalists including José Carbó, Peter Cousens, David Hobson, Marina Prior, Stuart Maunder, Greta Bradman, Yvonne Kenny, Jacqueline Porter, Teddy Tahu Rhodes, gypsy-jazz violinist Ian Cooper, Dominica Matthews, Glenn Winslade, Robert McFarlane, Jane Rutter and Amelia Farrugia. Solo performance has always played significant part in John’s concert career, and he presents a programme that ranges from popular classics by the great masters to ragtime and music of the jazz era. In addition to his work as a performer, John is now gaining a reputation as a fine composer with some 30 works published thus far.
