    Martin, Philip (1947-Present)

    He is a pianist and composer born in Dublin, Ireland.  He studied with Lennox Berkeley and Richard Rodney Bennett amongst others and held the UK-US Bicentennial Arts Fellowship.  As a composer he has written five piano trios, a harp concerto, two piano concertos and numerous chamber, instrumental and orchestral works.  As a pianist he has traveled internationally and worked as a soloist with orchestras that include all the BBC orchestras, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the National Symphony of Ireland.  He has made many recordings with perhaps his best known being "A Maiden's Prayer" by Louis Gottschalk from his 8 volume set of this composer's works.   Yehudi Menuhin presented him with a FRAM from the Royal Academy of Music which came after he had appeared playing Rachmaninov's "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini" on the British televised concert Omnibus at the Proms.  He is currently a teacher of piano and composition at the Birmingham Conservatoire in England and has given masterclasses all over the world.
