After the success of his recordings for the Sony Classical label, Alberto Martos emerges with force in the current musical panorama. Trained in Spain and Germany with professors A.Greger, E.Cheah and J.A.Salazar, his rich concert activity has led him to perform in halls such as the Auditorio Nacional, Palau de la Música Catalana, Carnegie Hall, Sala Pleyel, Teatro Colón or Philarmonie in Berlin. Personally chosen by Daniel Barenboim to occupy the first music stand of the West Eastern Divan Orchestra, he was defined by the maestro as “one of the greatest promises of the cello”.
Founding member of the prestigious Garnati Ensemble, his work Playing Goldberg recorded on Sony Classical together with Pablo Martos and Yuval Gotlibovich obtains the best reviews from the specialized press. In 2013 he receives together with his brother the Andalucía Joven award for his solidarity work through music. Part of this work was recorded in the documentary The Healing Notes, produced by Mercedes Milá. In 2016 they were invited to Puerto Rico, where they inaugurated the Pilar Defillò Museum (mother of Pau Casals), being named “Distinguished Guests” of the City of Mayagüez.
He has won first prize in the International Music Competition of Cartagena, the National Chamber Music Competition of Lucena and the Soloist Competition of the Royal Conservatory of Music Victoria Eugenia of Granada.
In spite of covering all kinds of repertoires, Alberto Martos is a great advocate of contemporary music. Composers of the stature of José Luís Greco, Ramón Paús, Pedro Guajardo, Yuval Gotlibovich or Juan Cruz have dedicated works to him. Some of the latest releases include Audax and Ciudadano Sombra by Ramón Paús, Cuento by Yuval Gotlibovich, the world premiere of Conrado del Campo’s trios (heritage recovery) and Woman at a Window by José Luís Greco.
In 2017 he releases his new album for Sony Classical, which includes the Concerto in D Major by J. Haydn and the Adagio from the Concerto in C Major, together with the Orquesta Ciudad de Granada and under the baton of maestro Antoni Ros Marbà. This same year he receives the Andaluces del Futuro Award -Bankia/Grupo Joly- granted in the modality of culture for his brilliant career as a soloist.
In 2018 Alberto Martos becomes the youngest cello professor in Spain, a task he currently performs at the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música Victoria Eugenia de Granada.
He has recently recorded for the IBS label the complete works for cello and piano by Robert Schumann with pianist Myriam Sotelo.
