Malcolm Martineau piano


Master accompanist 

To speak about Malcolm Martineau  is to speak about one of the greatest accompanists of our times. He is the piano partner in recital to artists like Thomas Hampson, Simon Keenlyside, Susan Graham, Anna Netrebko or Christopher Maltman. As a resident artists of the current edition of the LIFE Victoria -in which he will offer three recitals- we thought it was basic to approach this great pianist to the Akademie by offering theses masterclasses.
